programs & Initiatives

We work hard to understand community needs and interests and collaborate to identify and implement beneficial and viable programs and projects that contribute to community well-being and self-reliance beyond the lifespans of our mines.

Strategic Priorities

  • Participatory community processes such as baseline assessments conducted jointly with communities and third parties help us understand the existing social context, the actual and potential impacts of our operations, and community needs and interests. This enables us to identify opportunities for long-term investment
  • Socio-economic development programs focus on education, health, and alternative economic opportunities intended to provide long-term benefits
  • Local procurement initiatives engage and build capacity with local suppliers

2022 Goals

  • Continue expanding our socio-economic programs and projects in the communities near our mines.
