Relocation from mining sites, an influx of people into the area, land degradation, a decrease in biodiversity, reduction in water quality, and air and noise pollution are some of the results of mining by Koidu Holdings Limited (KHL) in Sierra Leone. KHL, operating since 2003, was granted rights to mine kimberlite diamonds worth about $1.5 billion for 25 years after the end of Sierra Leones war (KHL underwent restructuring in 2012 and is now under Octa Diamond Group). In December 2007, two people were shot dead by security in clashes with residents from nearby communities at the mine. Following this incident, the government suspended KHLs operations, and set up the Jenkins-Johnston Commission of Inquiry to investigate. The Commission produced a critical report on KHLs operations and made recommendations which were included in a White Paper published in March 2008. The commission found that the main root causes were relocation and resettlement, forced evacuation before blasting, lack of community benefits and lack of community participation. Crop compensation, assessment of which was made in 2003, has also been a point of contention, with residents complaining it was not enough. The initial EIA going back to 2003 has been criticized because it happened just after the war at a time when people were displaced. That EIA said 4,537 people would be affected by KHLs blasting, and would have to be relocated to new housing which the company should construct. KHL eventually built housing using mud bricks and proceeded with operations but this led to near violence until agreement was reached in 2005 to build new houses. In December 2012, violence again flared at the mine and two people were shot dead, when local workers went on strike over what they said were poor working conditions.
