Who We ARE

We’re working to stop corruption in the mining sector, before ground is even broken 

Since 2016, Transparency International’s Accountable Mining Programme has worked across the Transparency International (TI) global network to look at where and how corruption can affect mining and exploration rights. 

Using the Mining Awards Corruption Risk Assessment (MACRA) Tool, TI national chapters across 6 continents have identified and assessed corruption risks in mining approvals.  

By working collaboratively with governments, companies, civil society organisations and communities, we are building a fairer, clearer and cleaner process for obtaining a mining permit.
