Additional Information

Description: Dredging started in Ghana in the late 1930's on the Tano and Ankobra Rivers, and later at the Offin and Jimi Rivers. In a 40-year period, 1,412,000 ounces of fine gold were produced from two million cubic yards of alluvium. In 1961, DGL was formed to take over from Bremana Gold Dredging Co., and has since introduced a new fleet of dredges from ADL-Scotland. Rehabilitation is necessary to update its performance, hence, the company is placed on a diversified program.
