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.

Gold mining is devastating the rainforests of Peru

The effect of this small-scale mining on the environment is devastating. These small, artisanal mining crews do not set out expecting to hit seams rich with gold, but instead collect up the tiny gold flakes scattered throughout the rainforest. Their modus operandi is to clear the land of trees or dredge the river sediment, and then use mercury to extract the precious metal out of the dirt. This trail of destruction leaves the landscape devoid of most vegetation, with the toxic mercury having a catastrophic effect on any remaining plant and animal life. "There's enough gold in the landscape to make a great deal of money in a struggling economy," Fernandez says. "You just have to destroy an immense amount of land to get it."

Kenya to ban use of mercury in gold mines

Kenya intends to ban the use of mercury in the artisanal and small-scale gold mining to protect workers and conserve the environment.
With research showing that small-scale gold miners in Kenya are among the most exposed to mercury in the world, the government has instituted measures to phase out use of the toxic chemical in gold mining.

Brazil dismantles illegal mines in the Amazon

“This is an environmental tragedy because the mines follow the course of the river. The mercury that they use to recover gold and other elements pollutes the entire watercourse,” Roberto Cabral, who is in charge of inspections at the Brazilian Institute of Environment and Natural Resources IBAMA, told local media.

To Fight Money Laundering, Bank of England Refuses to Repatriate Venezuelan Gold

The United States has denounced that the sale of gold has become a way for Venezuela to evade US sanctions. “The United States has identified gold as primary means which the Venezuelan government has used to carry out illicit transactions…through this looting not only are they robbing the wealth of their own people, but it is also something that has had serious environmental consequences, evidenced by the rising mercury levels in rivers,” explained National Security Adviser John Bolton.

As Brazil’s Far Right Leader Threatens the Amazon, One Tribe Pushes Back

But then the bouts of diarrhea among children began. Erosion from the mines turned the river a sandy brown. Fish that had long been a staple of the community’s diet now had high levels of mercury, which is used to extract gold.
“Before, we had a lot of food here, but since the water became dirty, the fish vanished,” he said. “We became concerned about the future of our children.”

Irresponsible Australian mining in the Philippines persists

In 2008, I met Manoy Tony, an elder from the island of Rapu-Rapu in Bicol region, and Frances Quimpo, from the Centre for Environmental Concerns in the Philippines (CEC), in a public forum held in Melbourne about large-scale mining activities in the Philippines.
In the forum, they pointed out how huge mining companies like the Lafayette Philippines Inc, a subsidiary of an Australian mining company, have substantially destroyed the environment and community’s livelihood as a result of cyanide spills, pollution and depletion of water resources.

Before Chávez, Eight Out of Nine Venezuelans Had Regular Access to Water. Today: One in Five

Few places portray the extent of this ecocide as the infamous Mining Arc in Bolivar, where besides deforestation, extensive and unregulated gold mining has attracted guerrilla groups and contaminated water bodies with mercury and cyanide. The tragic environmental consequences of this project were portrayed in an award winning work from Correo del Caroní (one of the journalists involved has been missing since February).

Novel research method reveals small-scale gold mining’s impact on Peruvian Amazon

Artisanal miners don’t exploit large veins of gold, instead collecting gold flakes from throughout the rainforest by stripping the land of trees or scooping up river sediment, then using toxic mercury to extract the precious metal. Though the environmental damage done by artisanal miners is extensive, it is also hard to detect remotely — the miners leave behind a barren landscape of mercury-polluted ponds and sand dunes, which can resemble a natural wetlands environment when viewed via satellite imagery.
