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.

Putting Her Life on the Line to Save a River from Illegal Gold Mining

La Toma was now on the map for its gold, and illegal miners descended on the region. By 2014, illegal miners were operating an estimated 2,000 backhoes across the entire Cuaca region, including 14 on the banks of the Ovejas River near La Toma. The miners were also clearing forests and digging massive pits, and using mercury and cyanide to extract gold. In the process of all this, they were poisoning the Ovejas, destroying the river’s natural flow, and killing the fish that the community relied on for food.

How jewellery designers are becoming more sustainable

Mining for gold, one of the most widely used materials in jewellery, has resulted in the displacement of indigenous communities from gold-rich regions, and the pollution of waterways due to the spillage of chemicals like cyanide and mercury, which are used to separate gold from ore. Now the industry is making an effort to clean up its act by certifying gold that meets international sustainability standards.

“Reclaiming Our Rivers Ruined By Galamsey Will Be Both Arduous And Expensive!”

First of all, when the ban [on small-scale-mining] is lifted, an agreement that we are coming into with the UN Industrial Development Organisation (UNIDO) will kick in. We are doing some basic land studies to examine the level of mercury poisoning in the miners themselves, the communities they work in and the water bodies around, including fish, so we know the level of mercury poisoning. …When that is done, the result will be transmitted to the global environment community and we will have the chance to apply for funds that will help us in reclaiming the lands.

Activists fear for environmental protection under Indonesia’s revised Criminal Code

Reynaldo cited the case of the U.S. gold miner Newmont Mining Corp., which operated a mine in a remote and scenic area of North Sulawesi province. The Indonesian government filed suit against the company in 2004, accusing it of dumping millions of tons of mercury- and arsenic-tainted pollutants in the once-pristine Buyat Bay. It alleged that the pollution caused villagers in the area to develop skin diseases and other illnesses.

Hundreds of men risk their lives in the mines of Abangares, but no one seems to care

Inside the tunnels and shafts, as this newspaper shows, dynamite explodes everyday. In the gold mining process, they use mercury, a highly-damaging substance for both the environment and human health.

Small-scale gold miners risk it all with mercury exposure

“I know it is dangerous to touch mercury with my bare hands, but what do I do? I need the gold to sell and put some food on the table. I’ll deal with my health when it incapacitates me,” she says as she washes the ore she has collected.
While large-scale mines have replaced mercury, one of the top ten chemicals of major public health concern, with more efficient and less environmentally damaging techniques, smaller-scale gold diggers continue to use it routinely.

A Chance to Curb Abuse in Mineral Supply Chains

 Human Rights Watch has documented how civilians have suffered in armed conflict situations when armed groups have fought over access to mines. Communities near mines have faced ill-health and environmental harm as mines have polluted waterways with toxic chemicals. And children have risked their lives when working in small-scale mines in Mali, GhanaNigeriaZimbabweTanzaniaPapua New Guinea, and the Philippines.

Health and Artisanal Gold Mining

Mercury is one of the main health concerns of ASGM. The use of mercury to amalgamate and extract metals from rock has been in practice for over 5000 years , mainly because it is a simple, expedient, and relatively inexpensive method. Today mercury-free extraction processes are readily available, as are simple mercury reduction technologies.
The release of mercury into the environment from ASGM is not only a serious health issue for the local people but it also contributes towards global health problems. When mercury is released into the air, it may travel long distances before it is deposited into waterways and soils. When this occurs, bacteria can convert mercury into an even more toxic form called methyl-mercury, which can bio-accumulate up the food-web. This results in predatory fish, such as tuna and marlin, having high mercury concentrations.

Mercury poisoning victims to take govt. to court

Workers attached to the Guyana Geology and Mines Commission (GGMC), who suffered mercury poisoning, are looking to take their employer—the government—to court.
“We are planning to meet with an attorney soon because what we are going through is unfair,” one worker said.
