Newmont offers Ghanaian students mining apprenticeship program

The Chronicle reports that 45 Ghanaian students have been offered a four-year apprenticeship program with Newmont Akyem. The apprenticeships will be undergone in the US, Ghana or South Africa.

These are initiatives by the company to help disabuse the notion that mining communities are poor, as the companies either did little, or not factor the development of the communities into their programmes.
