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.

The path to responsible sourcing in the jewellery sector

These days, jewellers use many terms to describe their efforts to ensure that their products aren’t the result of abusive mining practices: “Responsible sourcing,” “ethical sourcing,” “responsible business conduct,” and “sustainable luxury” for example. Many jewellers want to be sure to avoid unwittingly using gold mined by children—a valid concern, as I found out when I visited gold mines in Ghana, Mali, Tanzania, and the Philippines and met children working in deep pits and processing gold with mercury.

Firm behind gold-fueled, Miami-based money-laundering racket fined $15 million

At their January sentencings, another federal judge, Robert Scola, pointed out that the money-laundering offense was an “extremely serious crime.” Scola emphasized the “harm” of the crime itself, saying their wrongdoing contributed to the deforestation of the Amazonian rainforest and the poisoning of workers and the environment. Miners who work in the gold mines of remote jungles regularly use toxic mercury to extract gold from rock, a process that pollutes waterways and fish and poisons humans.

New Parks: Peru, Ecuador Safeguard Pristine Rainforest

Over the past 20 years, this area has faced increasing pressures from illegal logging and mining interests. During the categorization process, many indigenous communities expressed their concern over these threats and pledged their support for the national park.
“The mountain of our ancestors has to be a national park because it is a sacred place,” declared Eriberto JimĂ©nez Hilorio, president of the Indigenous Federation of the Border Communities of Putumayo.read more... http://ens-newswire.com/2018/03/12/new-parks-peru-ecuador-safeguard-pristine-rainforest/

Garin Auwal: Gold everywhere but no glitter in residents’ life

He said he was impressed to see the artisan miners who by dint of their hard work have been producing gold in higher quantities and as well organizes themselves into groups. “What we need to do is to enter into partnership with the state government and the artisan gold miners by offering them legitimate land space to operate, technical support by way of equipment, encourage them to operate safer way of mining practice beyond the use of mercury which is dangerous and support them with credit guaranteed through the Bank of Industry”.

In Peru's Madre de Dios region, church helps indigenous peoples survive

In this hamlet of 110 residents, there is no school or potable water, and children are seen drinking Coke from bottles. Although the Harakmbut obtained land titles in 1977, 18 mining concessions have since been granted on these lands. People say mining activities have polluted their rivers with mercury used in the extraction process, and the government body responsible for supervising forest resources constantly imposes fines and pressures community members to stop their agricultural, fishing and hunting activities.

Towards safer mining environment

Odunsi identified two types of mining: the harmful and the harmless. He noted that mining is harmful, if it endangers the lives of miners or dilapidates the environment, but harmless when it leads to safety of miners, sustainability of the environment and generation of revenue to economy. He told some journalists that the project was informed by the increasing rate of heavy lead and mercury poisoning associated with gold mining, especially in Zamfara State, which had led to the death of about 400 children

The Inside Story of Gold Mining

“Federal government is aware that small-scale gold miners are exposed to occupational and environmental hazards at work. Government is also aware of the negative impact of some of their activities on the host communities, hence the need to educate the miners on the modern techniques. For instance, Mercury is commonly used for gold mining to remove the gold from the hub and this can be harmful if necessary steps are not taken,’’ he said.

Gold rush among poor in Migori leaves trail of destruction

Most of the miners lack protective clothing and equipment and are exposed to grave dangers of collapsed mine tunnels or toxic chemicals used in gold extraction and processing such as mercury.
The problem does not end here. The miners also end up poisoning people who depend on the rivers for their food with mercury and other toxins used in the extraction process.
“This is the water we depend on in dry spells but now with miners releasing dirt and toxins into it, we fear for our lives,” says Janet Rioba, a Tabesi resident, in reference to the ongoing pollution of River Tabesi.
Miners have for centuries used mercury to separate gold from rock or soil. But when the heavy metal seeps into the soil, rivers and the food chain it causes serious health problems such kidney failure, nervous breakdown and acute anaemia, which may not show symptoms for years, according to the United Nations Environment Programme.

Illegal Gold Mining Boom Threatens Cocoa Farmers (And Your Chocolate)

Although some small-scale mining operations therefore do have legal permits, many of them don’t, and many partake in illegal activities such as employing foreigners or crews of hundreds, using mercury, or using heavy machinery. To many in the country, the term galamsey has thus now become synonymous with criminality.

Treaty Does Not Stop Illicit Mercury Trade in South America

Peru is the largest gold producer in Latin America, with a highly active artisanal gold mining sector concentrated in the Amazonian region of Madre de Dios. A recent study found that the rate of expansion of gold mines in Madre de Dios increased from 2013 to 2016, following a wave of government action that had reduced mining activity. By 2016, more than 650 square kilometers of rainforest had been cleared for gold mining, an area larger than the city of Chicago and an increase of 40 percent since 2012. There is also evidence of widespread human mercury exposure in Madre de Dios. Last year, Duke University researchers reported high mercury levels in communities throughout the region.
