BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF INITIATIVE

#MineAlert is a Web and mobile app that shares mining activity information. MineAlert seeks to to promote ‘public- and private-sector accountability’ in the mining sector. With MineAlert communities and citizens have access to a centralised platform that enables them to access, track and share information and documents on mining applications and licences.#MineAlert provides users with about 3432 mining licences from across the country

The African Civic Tech Atlas is a work in progress (and a labour of love) for us but we may miss some initiative that needs updating. If your initiative needs to be updated on the database, kindly follow the instructions on the “Update Your Initiative” tab.
