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.

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.

Monkayo LGU okays relocation of miners, opposes large-scale mining

He said the local government unit (LGU) has supported the PMDC’s initiative to clear the “gold rush area” of small-scale miners in order to save nearby Naboc River that has been polluted with mercury and cyanide which are toxic chemicals used by the miners.

‘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.

Citigroup limits financing for mines that dump tailings at sea

In PNG, tailings from the Tolukuma gold mine resulted in elevated levels of arsenic, lead and mercury in the drinking water and flooded croplands for communities downstream, according to a 2013 report prepared for the International Maritime Organization and the United Nations Environment Programme. The report also notes anecdotal reports from local communities of increased illness and deaths after drinking and bathing in the river where the mine disposed of its tailings.

Ghana: Public Health Alert - Govt Warns Against Galamsey

GOVERNMENT has raised the red flag warning that artisanal and small scale mining exposes mining communities across Ghana to high and potentially dangerous levels of toxic metals such as mercury, arsenic, lead and cadmium.
These toxic metals, the government noted contaminates "our water, soil, sediment and food" and in the process inorganic mercury is also released into the air hence the need for Ghanaians to encourage themselves to strictly adhere to "our" collective environmental policy.

The mercury problem in artisanal and small scale gold mining

The problem of mercury use and emissions in ASGM is profound. It is also a problem that has existed for many decades and therefore one which has resisted many well‐intentioned interventions by governments, environmental advocates and humanitarian service organizations. Stemming mercury pollution in ASGM is not as simple as legally restricting or banning the use of mercury, as such measures have already been implemented in areas with the highest levels of mercury use, with little success.
