    The research examined two forms of Chinese involvement in small-scale mining in Ghana. The first entailed the influx from 2006 of irregular Chinese migrants into the main area of alluvial gold mining in southern Ghana. These miners came predominantly from Shanglin County in Guangxi province and became known as the ‘Shanglin gang’. They introduced heavy machinery in the form of excavators and large wash plants known as ‘trommels’, vastly increasing the volume of gold that could be extracted. Large amounts of money could be made, especially with the high price of gold from 2008 onwards, and news spread rapidly back in Shanglin County, with large numbers of miners migrating to Ghana. At the height of Chinese involvement in 2012 and 2013, media reports from China stated that almost 50,000 Chinese nationals had migrated to Ghana
