Mr. Ricky Ambrose was found dead yesterday Sunday December 18, 2022 at 10 am in the Arumu Backdam, Cuyuni. The late Ricky Ambrose was a Sworn Land Surveyor and Ranger for the past twenty  years and was a great support to other miners.
According to reports received by the GGDMA the late Ambrose was found with lacerations about his body, which was some distance away from his ATV which he was using at the time. Report reaching the Association is that his Licensed Fire Arm along with a quantity of Raw Gold and Cash are also missing.
The late Ambrose is well known to all in that populated area and other mining districts in the country. The Association has also learnt that the police only visited the area sometime on the morning of Monday December 19, 2022 to assess the scene and remove the body. The GGDMA finds this response by the police as being poor since Arumu is not a far distance away from Bartica.
The GGDMA would like to express its condolences to the family and friends of the late Ricky Ambrose and calls on the Authorities to have a proper investigation into this incident. The Association also calls on the Authorities put proper systems in place at our borders to negate all criminal activities.
NB: at the time of sending this release the police have not yet issued a statement or visited the crime scene.
