Dele Alake, minister of solid minerals development, has rolled out strategies to ensure maximum security at mining sites across Nigeria.
Alake highlighted insecurity as a major challenge hampering the development of the sector.
He said plans were ongoing in partnership with the National Security Advisor and the Ministry of Defence to further the process of establishing a new security outfit that will be largely technological.
Noting the importance of data to the development of the sector, the minister said the government, through the ministry, is investing in the generation and certification of relevant geoscientific data to boost investor confidence.
