Who gets the right to mine, and how?
Over 20 Transparency International Chapters, from some of the world’s most resource-rich countries, have come together to shine a light on how mining deals are made.
By focusing our spotlight on the start of the value chain we are working to prevent corruption before ground is even broken.
We are collaborating with an ever-growing network of global anti-corruption initiatives. We are working with governments, companies and communities who want to fix the flaws in the way mining permits are granted, flaws that leave the whole mining operation vulnerable to corruption.
Together, we are building coalitions against corruption, because we need to work together to create a fairer process for all.
Decisions made about whether or not a mining project goes ahead affect people’s live – and women are often disproportionately affected by corruption.

New Responsible Mining Business Integrity Tool
With indicators selected from close to 40 international best practice standards and frameworks, our new online and interactive tool helps mining companies evaluate and strengthen their anti-corruption controls and procedures, with a specific focus on project licensing, permitting and acquisitions.
Our research examines where, how and under what conditions corruption occurs when mining permits are granted.
Our Global Report is filled with case studies from around the world, and the MACRA Tool details how users can explore corruption loopholes in their own countries. These publications are available in English, French and Spanish.
