Ghana is the world’s second largest producer of gold – but with a decline in the price of this precious metal, the prospects for the Ghanaian mining sector have been uncertain.

In June 2014, AngloGold Ashanti – one of the largest mining houses in Ghana – announced plans to suspend some of its operations, but the associated job cuts are only part of a much wider problem for the local economy.

Sammy Darko reports for Africa Business Report, from the mining town of Obuasi in Ghana.
