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.

Forest, water bodies key to human survival

the Chairman of the Inter-ministerial committee on illegal mining, said
the committee would fight against all forms of illegal mining including the use
of dangerous chemicals such as cyanide and mercury, galamsey dredging and
foreigners engaging in small scale mining.

New Reporting Platform Sheds Light on Venezuela’s Mining Crisis

Mercury mixed waters let miners separate the gold from waste rocks, but cause severe health problems and contaminate the environment.
Mining in Latin America is often tied to social problems and damage to the environment. This won’t be different in Venezuela, where mining operations already ravish fragile ecosystems, including in the Amazon rainforest, and contaminate rivers, such as the Orinoco. The Arco Minero overlaps with Indigenous territories as well. At least 198 Indigenous communities are located in the region that is targeted for the exploitation of coltan, diamonds, bauxite, and gold.

‘Blood gold’ in your jewelry is poisoning workers and the rainforest. Here’s how to stop it.

Illegal gold molded into our wedding rings, dangling around our necks and hidden in our smartphones is polluting the rainforest with toxic chemicals and exploiting workers in Latin America.
Gold miners have stripped roughly 415,000 acres of South American tropical forest, an area twice as big as New York City, according to researchers at the University of Puerto Rico — and the rate of deforestation is only getting worse.
In Colombia, teenagers swim in mercury-filled pools of water as they use powerful hoses to suck up gold, an investigation by Massachusetts-based nonprofit Verité found.

Venezuela’s Mining Arc boom sweeps up Indigenous people and cultures

Locals depend on the Parguaza River for many uses, including swimming and bathing. Mining, however, commonly contaminates streams with mercury and other toxins, making them useless for drinking water, crop irrigation and recreation.

Nigeria: FG set to reduce mercury use in mining

The Federal Authorities has stated it's working  to develop a Nationwide Action Plan, NAP, to scale back using mercury in Nigeria.
Dr Abdukadir Muazu, the Everlasting Secretary, Ministry of Mines and Steel Improvement, stated this in Abuja at a workshop for Nationwide Comprehensive Analysis of Artisanal and Small Scale Gold Mining Sector.

Mercury kit study work for smale scale miners

This process is commonly known as “cooking.” The mercury vapour, which includes fine globules, is partly inhaled while the remainder is released into the atmosphere, which returns as part of the “mercury cycle.”
Methods introduced to avoid the practice of releasing mercury into the atmosphere and which can reduce the mercury loss to less than 0.1 per cent are available but have not been so popular amongst miners due to the discolouring effect on the gold after distillation in a retort.
This discolouration is caused by the presence of iron and arsenic compounds and results in a lower price being offered by gold buyers for the product.
One such device is the “Mercury Retort” which evaporates the mercury in a closed cycle and recovers it by condensing the vapour with cooling water.

Lone forest ranger fights destruction of Brazil’s Amazon rainforest

Trees that should be protecting the climate by absorbing carbon dioxide keep being hacked down to obtain tropical wood and to make way for power plants, gold mines and soy bean farms, which are irrigated with the ill-famed herbicide glyphosate.
The remote Amapa state, where Tumucumaque is located, has largely been spared from such activities that have plagued Brazil so far.
But illegal gold mines are already operating here, leading to trees being felled and mercury being released into rivers, where indigenous people report the presence of “mercury fish.”

FG, UNIDO Develop Action Plan On Mercury Compounds Reduction

In his words “The findings of this research I am aware would benefit the ministry in terms of accurate data generation and support our policy review initiative. More importantly, it will be part of a programme aimed at developing our national action  plan on the reduction of the use of mercury and other mercury compounds in Nigeria in accordance to the provision of the Article 7 of the of the Minimata convention on mercury which Nigeria is signatory to.”

Scientists study mercury poisoning in Peruvian forest on pope’s itinerary

The pontiff stops Jan. 19 in Puerto Maldonado, the capital of the Madre de Dios region. Deep in largest tropical forest left on the planet, a Wake Forest-sponsored research center called the Center for Amazonian Scientific Innovation (CINCIA) has formed a partnership with several Peruvian ministries and universities to study mercury pollution in the soils and waterways, mercury poisoning of the indigenous peoples, and post-mining reforestation methods.
