The dredge operators who were illegally mining on Micobie lands in Region Eight are still refusing to refill the land they have excavated to conduct mining operations, Toshao Cleveland Henry yesterday revealed.
He said although the operators were ordered to refill the land by the Guyana Geology and Mines Commission (GGMC) almost two weeks ago, the owner of the dredges are still refusing to do so.
“They were also told the leave this area of the river but they are still parked close by and they are not moving. They are not even trying to refill the land they have dug up,” the Toshao lamented.
