Our ultimate objective is to develop our projects in consultation with our host communities to ensure we create positive and lasting social and economic benefits for all our stakeholders. We pride ourselves on behaving in an ethical manner. Our approach is to establish an open and honest dialogue with all our key stakeholders early on in the evaluation process so that we can work together to minimize the potential impacts of our exploration activities and ensure we involve them at key stages of our development.
We are committed to operating in a sustainable and environmentally friendly manner. One of our first considerations is to identify, evaluate and mitigate the potential impact our activities could have on the environment and ecosystems of the area in which we plan to operate. Our goal is to conduct our business in a manner that exceeds all applicable environmental laws in the countries in which we operate and to meet or exceed the highest standards of best practice established by the mining industry worldwide.
