Abstract Share this page

The mining sector of mineral-producing countries serves as a veritable foreign exchange earner and a provider of job opportunities for their citi zens and other stakeholders. Computerization of mi ning cadastre procedures and operations has signi ficant multiplier effects on the earnings from the sector in particular a nd on the national economy in general. A computerized mining information system (CMIS) or computerized mining cadastre (CMC) is a computer-based system that maintains a database of mining licenses with their ownership status, time validity, geographic location of their mineral concession areas, fees and dues paid, and other relevant information. An opera tional CMC should cover all the transactions that occur during the entire life cycle of a mining title from the initial application, through the granting of the license, payment of annual fees, tracking of the ne cessary annual reports, re-assignment or lapsing, and final relinqu ishment of the title. The system must, as a rule, support tools and functionalities for the execution of a number basic tasks, including applicants and holde rs management, data encoding, data conversion and transfer, pr iorities and encumbrances checking, geometric valida tion of concession areas, manage ment of digital registers, titles monitoring, spatia l queries and map visualizati on, management of system paramete rs, generation of statistical reports and management of user roles, privileges and rights. The goals of such a system are to strength en investors’ property rights and security of tenure within th e mining sector, enhance the transparency of the mineral licensing pro cess and support government’s regu latory capacity through improved efficiency, information availability and management. In this paper, it presents the prospects, challenges, and strategies in th e implementation of a computerized mining information system for th e Federal Republic of Nigeria within the framework of an on-go ing World Bank-funded project named “Sustainable Mana gement of Minera l Resources Project (SMMRP)”
