Fair Trade Jewellery Fairtrade gold Gold Small-Scale Mining

Photos of Kenyan Gold

The Kenyan Gold - All very happyAs promised here are the photos of the 200g of gold from Kenya.

This feels very like the early days, when we received our first shipment of Gold from Oro Verde. To reiterate, this is the first legal export of gold from the hands of an artisanal gold COOP in the history of Kenya. All very exciting.

We have so much work and planning to do if we are to realise our dream of certified Fairtrade Gold from Africa, but given the last ten years of experience in developing traceable supply chains in gold to the jewellery market, I am confident we will do a much better job than we did in the past.

So well done to everyone at The MICA Coop and CRED Jewellery, another piece of history. Crikey I even had a book offer yesterday, so I shall start planning the chapter on ‘The fight for African gold that benefits Africa’

200g of gold from Kenya. A first for small-scale mining in Kenya.
