#MineAlert is a web and mobile app that shares mining activity information to promote public and private sector accountability in the mining sector.

The MineAlert platform enables users to access, track and share information and documents on mining applications and licences. By September 2018, about 3400 mining licences from across the country had been entered onto the platform.
