Abstract: Newmont Mining Corporation (Denver, U.S.A.) is the parent Company of Newmont Ghana Gold Limited that operates in the Brong-Ahafo region of Ghana. This information is picked from the Ahafo site of the Company in a town called Kenyasi, comprising three suburbs;namely, Kenyasi # 1, Kenyasi # 2 and OLA resettlement. The operations of Newmont resulted into population influx. Pressure on water supply systems became very great, amidst other challenges. At OLA resettlement, residents also faced problems regarding the quality of the water. These circumstances led to agitations and road blocks which normally prevented Company vehicles from working. Newmont’s timely assessment and attention to the challenges resolved all the issues.
