The Lands Minister Samuel Abu Jinapor has ordered that the registration of MAXAM Company Limited, a Mining Service Provider be suspended.
This comes after a vehicle from MAXAM headed for Chirano Gold Mines with explosives exploded at Apiatse after the vehicle crashed with a motorbike.
Dozens of life have been lost in the process with several others battling for their lives with severe injuries.
The Minister has also ordered for the interdiction of the Chief Inspector of Mines who is also the Chief Inspector of Explosives with immediate effect because he is supposed to have ensured that there was responsible supervision in the manufacture, transport, storage, and use of explosives.
The Ministry used the opportunity to assure the people of Ghana that it will carry out a thorough investigation to ensure that people who did not take their responsibilities seriously are dealt with.
