Striking a balance between environmental stewardship and economic stimulation.
These initiatives aim to use development of a mine as a stimulant for development of local businesses that become independent, to the extent that they continue to thrive after the mine has come to the end of its life.
The aim of achieving sustainable economic activity is an exciting challenge that is built on connecting the deep and fundamental knowledge of the region by the local people with economic stimulus brought about initially by demand from the mine. Basic initiatives may include agriculture, small business development and micro-finance.
Education in the outlying areas in which our deposits are located would benefit from support. The possibility of augmenting the teaching provided by local professionals with on-line content provides an exciting opportunity to broaden the exposure of scholars as well as teachers.
Water quality is a sensitive issue and it is absolutely essential that water discharged into the environment from mines and processing plants is free of contaminants. The associated monitoring provides a means of heightening awareness of water quality and empowering local communities to monitor the quality of water that they discharge to the environment.
