Small-scale gold mining in Ecuador takes place under precarious conditions basically due to lack of technology, illegality, informality and inequity. For these reasons, the Ecuadorian Government, through the Ministry of Natural Non Renewable Resources and the National Institute of Research in Geology Mining and Metallurgy (INIGEMM), is executing a project to improve the working conditions of small-scale and artisanal mining for gold and base-metal recovery. The project has seven different components in order to cover all the needs of the influence area, where one of these components is Technology Transfer. This paper presents the details of how this component is looking forward to boost technical education among small-scale miners, and to provide them of a better infrastructure to improve efficiency and performance of mining activities.
