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.

Liberia: Suspicions Heighten Over Undisclosed Reports of Cyanide Pollution of Communities in Bong County

According to a new report compiled after a fourth investigation sanctioned by the Liberia National Police, the company is liable for polluting the community water source and flora and fauna as a result of “a catastrophic failure” of its tailing storage facility (TSF) on September 27, 2017.
Some of the chemical that spill into the community includes cyanide, mercury and lead, which are highly dangerous to the community residents, the report said.

Mara River threatened by mining, pollution and forest destruction

In Tarime district, Tanzania, small-scale gold miners have used river water in extracting the metal. Gold extraction requires mercury, which is poisonous, and is washed into the river.
Kwinya miners cooperative society secretary general Michael Mwita said, “We previously did not know we were polluting the Mara River by allowing water and chemicals we use to return to the river.” Even women are busy exploring.
The Kwinya cooperative society started exploring gold in 2015 behind the hills within Kerende area. Miners use crude and dangerous methods to explore. “Lack of funds has slowed our work, but we are now getting small money from our work,” Mwita said.
Since they work in a hilly area, every time it rains, water washes sand and mercury into the river. This adds the pressure to the once mighty river, posing serious threats.
Mwita declined to say how miners obtain deadly mercury. “We do not know where the mercury comes from but when we need it, we get it,” he said.

Operation vanguard arrest miners and seize equipments

For instance, Illegal miners especially the Chinese have adopted a dangerous method of acquiring gold. Operation Vanguard's quest to flush out these illegal miners from the hinterlands, forest and backyards is yielding fruitful results. These illegal miners especially the Chinese are bringing the black soil (ore) into our communities, households and do the processing for gold in their bedrooms. They apply chemicals such as cyanide, mercury and others.

Why The Extraction Of Natural Resources Needs A Blockchain Solution

At its worst, this process leaks toxic chemicals into the air and water, damaging ecosystems, poisoning communities, and worsening life for those who are employed in the industry. There are countless examples, from mercury and cyanide pollution linked to gold extraction to the Berkeley Pit in Montana—an old mine now filled with lethal water.

Harvard Magazine Log-In | Register Search form Search Search Submit ARTICLES CURRENT ISSUE ARCHIVES CLASS NOTES CLASSIFIEDS DONATE FEATURES The “Global Chemical Experiment”

At Harvard, Sunderland’s focus has been mercury pollution, a prime example of how the waste products people put into the oceans come back to harm human health. Mercury is a naturally occurring heavy metal that can be toxic to the nervous system of humans and other animals. Elemental mercury is most familiar to people in its liquid form, called quicksilver, but it also exists as a gas, and can interact with other chemicals to form organic and inorganic compounds. Most of the earth’s mercury stores are buried deep within the planet’s crust, but some is released to the environment naturally through processes such as volcanic activity, including through hydrothermal vents on the ocean floor. Humans have also been extracting and using mercury since antiquity; it’s been used to separate silver and gold from raw ore, and is present in many products, from batteries to light bulbs and paints.
Mercury is still used in mining. Small-scale, artisanal gold extraction, an informal industry practiced by an estimated 10 million to 19 million people in 70 countries, has become the biggest source of emissions today—one that causes grave pollution problems for local communities and ecosystems. Coal-fired power plants are another major source of oceanic mercury pollution. Annually, humanity burns several billion tons of coal. Thus, even though coal contains only trace amounts of mercury, the sheer volume combusted by humans—when combined with the metal’s unique properties—has created a global problem.

Gov’t set to demolish some Diwalwal gold processing facilities

Ball mills use mercury to separate the gold from the ore, while CIPs use cyanide.
They are to be moved to Barangay Mabatas, some six kilometers down the slope of Mt. Diwata Range and the 729-hectare Diwalwal mining area.
On June 29​ last year, the PMDC issued a cease-and-desist against ​the continued operation of the ball mills and CIPs, but small-scale miners opposed the order.

‘Greening’ looming larger in gold mining sectoral training

In an information-sharing session with the Stabroek Business earlier this week Applewhite-Hercules disclosed that the School had recently moved to step up training in Codes of Practice associated with the industry by undertaking training with the GGMC’s Corps of Wardens to support them in their primary mandate, that is, the curbing of further degradation of the environment through illegal and unsafe mining practices. The exercise, according to Applewhite-Hercules had sought, among other things, to expose wardens to field-based training with Quantum Geographic Information System (QGIS) software designed to enhance their capacity to capture and present data relating to mining practices in the sector.
