Stamp Program Objectives

In order to address the global mercury problem, Aladdin has developed the Strategic Abatement of Mercury and Poverty (STAMP) program. This program is designed to induce artisanal and all mercury mining users to adopt Aladdin's highly efficient mining technologies. The fundamental strategy looks to illustrate the economic advantages of HGP to the miners. Although being able to provide a safe work environment , safety benefits alone are not sufficient to convince indigent miners to abandon mercury processing. Ultimately, the success of the program must rely on its ability to provide the miners with a greater level of income than what they are able to derive when using mercury. The broad objectives of the STAMP Program are as follows:
1. Employ as many artisanal miners as is possible while maintaining the economical integrity of the program.
2. Work to eliminate the use of mercury when extracting gold in the customary artisanal alluvial concentrates and hard rock deposit areas.
3. Increase artisanal miner wages above the national average and provide bonuses based on gold revenues.
4. Create new employment opportunities and provide training for higher paid jobs in the trades, management, administration, accounting, mining, geology, process engineering, and attendant disciplines.
5. Provide a humanitarian fund to benefit the miners and their families.
6. Convert sites to farming land or forestry after gold is depleted from the properties.
7. Attract artisanal miners to proven gold reserves set aside by large scale mining companies and / or the government.
8. Make a profit for all stakeholders

Aladdin's Pledge To Social Responsibility

Aladdin's Pledge To Social Responsibility

Aladdin Technologies Inc. is dedicated to bringing environmentally friendly processes to host countries so that mineral wealth can be extracted in a way that does not endanger local ecosystems or the health of native people. This interest - coupled with a commitment to mutual respect and a close involvement with all stakeholders - is behind the company's drive to help the government and citizens of countries achieve maximum benefit from their mineral resources. We also recognize that shareholder interests are best served when - based on our ethical treatment of indigenous people and sensitivity to environmental issues - countries actively seek out business relationships with the company.

Social responsibility is not simply an abstract concept, but rather, a realistic moral command and business strategy. Aladdin will do whatever is reasonable to help the communities of people around the world with which it interacts. Therefore, to disregard the tenants of mutual respect and fair trade would not only be morally corrupt, but it could also damage shareholder value in company mineral endeavors. Aladdin endeavors to be a leader in the way in which it brings obligations of social responsibility to its business enterprises.

AERIAL IMAGES CAPTURE SWATHES OF AMAZON RAINFOREST DESTROYED BY GOLD MINING

The consequences have been devastating: The Madre de Dios region of Peru, which includes Tambopata, has lost an estimated 148,000 acres of forest. Liquid mercury from the mining process also makes its way into the Madre de Dios River, poisoning tens of thousands of people living along it.

IFEJ launches IFEJ-Flamingo Awards 2018

However, Ghana is depleting its natural resource wealth whilst missing opportunities for economic transformation. This is reflected through:
• Poor land and water management practices which have led to accelerated erosion, and siltation of water bodies, land degradation and increasing desertification.
• Deforestation which is highest in the cocoa-forest landscape of the High Forest Zone.
• Ghana’s fish resources are heavily overexploited. Lack of effective management of the resources has resulted in depletion of the fish stock, with little returns for investment in management and value addition.
• We all know about “galamsey” – Artisanal gold mining has significant negative impacts on the environment and human health due to destructive mining methods and rampant use of mercury.
• Air pollution contributes to nearly 27,000 premature deaths each year.
• Poor coastal area management is a serious challenge in Ghana.

Zimbabwe: Effects of Mercury On Human Beings

For foetuses, infants and children, the primary health effect of mercury is impaired neurological development. Mercury exposure in the womb, which can result from a pregnant woman's consumption of fish that contain mercury, can adversely affect a baby's growing brain and nervous system. Impacts on thinking, memory, attention, language, and fine motor and visual spatial skills have been seen in children exposed to mercury in the womb.

Illegal Gold Mining in Peru Is Devastating the Amazon

The buffer zone is intended to protect one of the most biodiverse reserves in the world, but illegal mining is has polluted lakes with mercury and other chemicals, killing vegetation, animals and risking the natural balance of the region.

Zimbabwe: Mercury use comes under spotlight

The Environmental Management Agency (EMA) says there is need to raise awareness on mercury use especially among small scale miners and in communities living in mining areas.
Briefing journalists in Harare today, EMA Provincial Manager Harare Metropolitan,
Mr Robson Mavondo said the global mercury project conducted from 2002 to 2015 showed that 70 percent of small scale miners were poisoned with mercury, while 69 percent of children working with mercury and  33 percent of children not working with mercury had chronic mercury intoxication.
“Studies on the environmental and human health assessment identified gold stamp milling centers as the main places of mercury pollution,” he added.

Govt silence on mercury abuse worrisome

WHILE the use of mercury is often considered the easiest and most cost-effective solution in gold separation by small-scale gold miners, the danger posed by the reckless use of the substance to both the miners and the environment demands urgent government intervention.
It is critical for government to come up with instant programmes to educate the artisanal miners who have no appreciation of the risks associated with the use of the chemical in their operations.

Colombia bans mercury in gold mining

Colombia’s government announced Monday that it has prohibited the use of mercury in gold mining.
The highly poisonous chemical will also gradually be phased out in other industries until a full ban on the industrial use in 2023, the Environment Ministry said on its website.
Mercury is primarily used in the largely unregulated gold mining industry and is blamed for extreme pollution in areas where gold is abundant.

EMA red flags mercury use in Midlands

“Major studies on the effects of mercury have been done in Zimbabwe and these include the Global Mercury Project, which was done from 2002 to 2007 and the 2015 diagnostic report on environmental health implication of mercury in artisanal small scale gold mining in Zimbabwe,” Mapako said.
He said on average, over 50 tonnes of mercury is used annually in gold processing, adding that studies on the environmental and human health assessments showed that gold stamp milling centres were the main centres of mercury pollution.

Sanjay Gubbi's 'Second Nature' Is a Field Guide to Future Conservationists

In November 2016, the status of ‘Conservation Reserve’ given to the Kappatagudda Conservation Reserve, in Gadag district of Karnataka, was withdrawn for gold-mining. The decision came up before the State Board for Wildlife (SBW) in February 2017. To the detriment of the conservationists who were on the board of the SBW, including Sanjay Gubbi, the then chief minister of Karnataka, Siddaramaiah, was in favour of mining. When the time came for Gubbi to put forth his arguments, he chose to keep aside the conservation angle and instead spoke of the mercury poisoning that comes with gold mining. Such pollution would affect the lakes and tanks of the region, which are already severely stressed, he said.

Zim’s struggles to eliminate mercury

Today the area is one of the busiest, with artisanal miners popularly known as Makorokoza employing every means to secure the precious mineral deposits.
There is massive use of mercury, a highly toxic element that is a threat to human life, as gold panners extract gold from ore.
Despite efforts by government to eliminate mercury use, the journey seems to be a futile one as the cheap and readily available chemical is still being used by many.
A number of gold panners and commercial miners around the country have no alternative means to extract gold beside mercury despite its detrimental effects to the environment and human life.
