Getting to Gold -Global witness

The Government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan (GIRoA) has made welcome public pledges to transparency and good governancein its emerging mining sector. This paper considers how Afghanistan’s first mining concession contracts will support these commitments.
Global Witness has carried out a review of the 2008 Aynak copper contract. To provide further comparative analysis, Global Witness decided to expand our review to include the later 2011 Qara- Zaghan gold contract.  This paper identifies the positive points between the two contracts, and discusses areas which need further attention.
