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.

Should Rivers Have Rights? A Growing Movement Says It’s About Time

The river is the first in Colombia to receive this status, the result of local environmental campaigns against the mining industry. Gold mining was the first activity on the Atrato to draw international attention, and has badly damaged sections of the river through the use of dredging machines and mercury and cyanide used in the gold mining process. Recognition of legal personhood for the Atrato seeks to stop or lessen the damage caused by mining and clean up the mess made to date. However, local groups are still struggling to find a practical way to implement these legal protections.

Gold panning in Midlands causes surge in violence

Scientific research has demonstrated that mercury, even in small amounts, can damage the brain, heart, lungs, liver, kidneys, thyroid gland, pituitary gland, adrenal gland, cells, enzymes and hormones and suppress the body’s immune system.

“This led in turn to an accumulation of mercury in the workers’ bodies, resulting in symptoms such as trembling, loss of coordination, slurred speech, loosening of teeth, memory loss, depression, irritability and anxiety or the The Mad Hatter Syndrome.

Illegal mining in Venezuela threatens to contaminate fish stocks in South America, Caribbean

Other impacts that are likely attributable to the illegal mining are increased levels of mercury being found in some species of freshwater fish, including catfish. Though use of mercury for mining is illegal in Venezuela, it is nevertheless being widely used. The researchers advised that Trinidad and Tobago and Brazil should begin monitoring their seafood for mercury coming from Venezuela's Orinoco River region.

Indonesia-Japan Agree to cooperate in Citarum river conservation

The Indonesian government said it appreciated cooperation in the mercury treatment with Japan and agree to strengthen the capacity in mercury research and observation, early implementation of the project of mercury waste management and to promote follow up activities in Artisanal and Small-scale Gold Mining (ASGM) training.

Indonesia and Japan also agree to collaborate in reducing sea plastic waste ahead of the meetings of ASEAN+3 and G20.

In addition, the two sides have expressed satisfaction with the promotion of regional cooperation in research and observation of mercury in Asia Pacific.

Mercury Use:Zimbabwe’s Poisonous Problem

Along the river, there is Brighton (19) who says has worked with mercury for two years and was already experiencing hand tremors, a typical sign of mercury poisoning.
Speaking at the Mercury Initial Assessment launch in Kadoma early last year stakeholders agreed that there was need to educate gold miners on the safe use of mercury.
Wellington Takavarasha, president of the Zimbabwe Artisanal and Small-Scale for Sustainable Mining Council, told the meeting that Zimbabwe was among the world’s top five illegal importers of mercury and lack of information on the dangers of the chemical was exposing many citizens to health risks.

Meet Lilian Von Trapp, The Jewellery Designer Speaking Up Against Unethical Gold-Mining

She was shocked by what she read about how gold is sourced – and the often crippling impact on mining communities. “In the gold pits of Uganda, there isn’t only the danger of dying by being crushed,” she says, “the other horrible situation is – and this is why people in Uganda have a low life expectancy – they are handling mercury and cyanide with their bare hands. I’ve seen mothers my own age or even younger burning mercury without any protection while they have babies on their backs. Of course those toxins go into your organs and they destroy everything from within, and they also go into the groundwater, which contaminates the soil.”
