Avoiding Mercury in Small-Scale Gold Mining Sector
The Global Environment Facility – Global Opportunities for Long-term Development of Artisanal and Small-scale Gold Mining Sector: Integrated Sound Management of Mercury in Indonesia’s ASGM (“GOLD-ISMIA”) is a project initiated by United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in partnership with Kementrian Lingkungan Hidup dan Kehutanan (KLHK) and Badan Pengkajian dan Penerapan Teknologi (BPPT) to support 6 (six) small-scale gold mining operations in Indonesia to avoid the use of mercury up to 5 metric tonnes per year.
The GOLD-ISMIA App and Web Portal
To support the project goal, the GOLD-ISMIA team intends to develop a mobile application and a web-based data portal that can monitor mercury avoidance systematically and regularly. This mobile application will enable the Project team to collect data from each gold processing owner at each location on a daily basis. Meanwhile, the web portal will help the Project team estimate the total amount of mercury avoided from a given location or area.
How Dihardja Software helps?
The biggest concern with the mobile app is identifying the user who will be willing to use it and the technology readiness in the remote gold mining area. To learn about the challenges firsthand, our team visited two gold mining sites in Minahasa Utara. Based on the field visit result, we designed an interface that will be simple to use for the less technology-savvy miners and incorporated reward system to incentivize them. We also added offline mode feature to help miners collect data and send them later when they have access to internet connection. We also took input from the KLHK and BPPT team to design a web dashboard that they can easily access to get data for reporting purpose.
