The Minerals Commission has revoked the license of Canadian Mining firm, Romex Mining Corporation.
The revocation follows Romex flouting a number of laws governing mining in Ghana.
Romex is reported to have transferred its mineral rights to another company, FCMI Ghana Incorporated, without the consent of the ministry in charge of the industry.
Romex also began mining when they only had a prospecting license.
The mining firm is also reported to have flouted some of the laws of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
Meanwhile the Minerals Commission has hinted to Citi Business news it will soon introduce new classifications of small scale mining licences in Ghana.
The reclassification follows the seeming categorisation of only two classes of miners in Ghana- small scale and large scale mining.
The commission says there is wide gap between small and large scale mining.
It adds that this makes it difficult to classify companies in between the two scales.
Chief Executive Officer of the Minerals commission, Dr Toni Aubyn speaking to Citi business news said they will complete the process next year.
