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.

Toxic mercury poisoning the Amazon

"The mercury pollution crisis in the Amazon is unfortunately both invisible and largely ignored despite growing evidence of the dangers it poses for people and wildlife across the river system," said Jordi Surkin, Director of WWF's Amazon Coordination Unit. "Furthermore, the most vulnerable victims are indigenous peoples and local communities – and tens of thousands of unique species."

Environment group ask PH to ratify Minamata Convention

The most vulnerable to mercury are children, newborn babies and fetuses; populations who eat fish containing mercury, people who use mercury at work, and those who live near sources of mercury pollution are also at risk.
BAN Toxics pointed out that the Philippines is already struggling with the weight of mercury pollution from contaminated sites, such as the closed Palawan Quicksilver mines, which caused high levels of mercury exposure in communities surrounding the mine.
The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) have found the significant contribution of the artisanal and small-scale gold mining sector to mercury pollution in the country.

Mining Armenia: protests test the Velvet Revolution

Similarly, open-pit operations at the mine are expected to kick up dust – further polluted with cyanide – which is expected to contaminate the air in a 30km radius around the mine, affecting people in the resort city of Jermuk, and an additional six local villages. The mine also plans to dump its waste into the Lake Sevan basin, polluting a body of water of “environmental, economical, social, scientific, cultural, aesthetic, medical, climatic, recreational, and spiritual value,” according to the 2001 Law on Lake Sevan.

Suriname: Ronnie Brunswijk: from guerrilla leader to MBA

It is not strange, therefore, that many reacted with surprise in 2015 when he earned a bachelor’s degree and now again that he has achieved his MBA. For his thesis he researched the use of mercury by small-scale miners in the gold mining sector in Suriname.
  He received guidance from Professor Hubert Rampersad, a well-known Surinamese scholar who resides in the Netherlands. Rampersad said Brunswijk did the work and deserved the MBA title. “We should not even give credence to all the rumours about him buying the title. That actually is the real reason why Suriname is so stuck in the past; because people keep voting for politicians who speak well and act like they know everything, but do not invest in themselves to bring the country ahead. Anyone can do what Mr. Brunswijk did,” the professor said.

Illegal gold mining puts road in danger

The machete fights among artisanal miners, or ‘makorokozas,’ as they are commonly referred to, have brought a lot of misery among residents of Kwekwe as well as surrounding areas.
Some analysts have attributed this uncouth behaviour to the long term effects of exposure to mercury.
It has been scientifically proven that inhalation of elemental mercury vapours can cause neurological and behavioural disorders such as tremors, emotional instability, insomnia, memory loss and headaches, which in a way attempts to explain the violent nature of the illegal gold panners.

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.
