It must be noted that according to the Central Bank Forex statistics (2017), Uganda is not such a major producer of gold yet surprisingly gold features among its major exports and a leading foreign exchange earner. This phenomenon is explained by the demise of the DRC into civil war that has lasted for over two decades. DRC has become a major supplier of gold that is imported into Uganda, refined and packaged for export.
Uganda has therefore developed a highly integrated network that routes gold from the DRC, to local refineries (usually done in the most informal ways), packaged and exported.
Meanwhile this trade is a legal and genuine trade; some unscrupulous individuals have jumped on to the band wagon and pretended to be gold traders. You should be always on the look-out for these charlatans before you lose hard-earned money.
At SIMBA Mining, we always endeavour to present all the proof that is required for a gold trader in Uganda. As our client, you should feel free to request any legal documents for your satisfaction.
