According to a prominent citizen of River Gee County, Mr. Weah Karpeh who posted on his Face Book Wall noted that some foreigners are operating illegally in the County, particularly in Tartuken with what he called makeshift dredges from the banks of Rivergee.

Mr. Karpeh said the owners of the alleged criminal mining equipment are said to be moving to Sinoe County, with truckload of these makeshift dredges been driven through Tartuken to collect the consignment but was impeded by the very deplorable road to the mining community with yellow machines and tankers of the obscured Chinese miners.

In a related development, some Ghanaian miners in Tartuken are also advertising an underground money transfer network through which they remit hundreds of thousands of United States Dollars to Ghana at the rate of 60 cedis per dollar paid to unscrupulous money handlers probably may be in Monrovia.

With this latest development, this out let is calling on the Ministry of Mines to quickly launch an investigation into these alleged dubious operations.

Investigation continues.
