A 35-year-old woman has been arrested by the Operation Vanguard Task Force team in the Amansie District of the Ashanti Region for engaging in 'galamsey (illegal mining)' activities, according to a report by Graphic Online.

The illegal miner who hails from Obuasi in the Ashanti Region is said to have been handed over to the the Manso Nkwanta District Police Headquarters for processing for court.
