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.

Study: Eating fish exposes women to mercury risks Read more at: https://www.standardmedia.co.ke/health/article/2001299716/why-eating-fish-may-expose-pregnant-women-to-mercury-risks

Pregnant women and children in high end fish eating towns such as Kisumu, Migori, Homabay, Nakuru, Eldoret, Nairobi and Mombasa at most risk of mercury pollution. Mercury poisoning greatly affects brain development of babies born to women who eat large amounts of contaminated fish while pregnant. The researchers further note that methyl mercury exposure increases the risk of cardiovascular and immune system ailments disease.

A new leaf: the hardy trees reforesting the Amazon

the uncontrolled alluvial mining has destroyed nearly 100,000 hectares of rainforest, according to the CINCIA Amazon research institution.
But the damage goes beyond felling trees. Around 180 tonnes of mercury are dumped every year into the rivers, lakes and soils of the biodiversity hotspot which was visited by Pope Francis in January, according to studies by Peru’s Artisanal Gold Council.
As part of the reforestation experiment, scientists are trying out tree species which can survive in the sand left behind by mining. They are also using bio-char compost, made from locally grown Brazil nut shells, to block the absorption of mercury from the soil into the trees and to regenerate the topsoil.

Family members say seven Venezuelans killed in remote gold mine

The growth of wildcat mining has growing criticism over gang violence, deforestation and environmental contamination from the use of toxic chemicals in the process.
Soldiers killed 18 people in a clash with illegal miners in Bolivar in February, while a gang feud there in 2016 left at least 17 dead.

With Unusual Mining Cooperative, DRC Community Strikes Gold

Still, any job that requires digging into the earth is difficult. With mining, there’s the added risk of using mercury, which is nearly always found at artisanal sites.
Mercury, when heated, is often used to extract gold ore from amalgam. Artisanal and small-scale miners often use mercury without appropriate protection, leading them to inhale toxins. Symptoms of mercury poisoning include breathing problems, pneumonia, birth defects and more.

Peru: Gold, garbage and guns in the highest town on earth

There's also the extensive environmental pollution. Chipanas indicates the rock-grinding mills of the "trapicheros," the men who separate gold from the lumps of rock via the amalgam process. One miner is handling mercury without wearing gloves. On this particular day, they get less than eight grams (.28 ounces) of gold out of 10 tonnes of rock. The mine yields less and less each year, says Chipanas. There’s also been a sharp drop in the price of gold in recent months. The tough struggle to survive here has got even tougher.

Illegal mining leaves toxic wastelands in Indonesia

According to one recent study, the mercury found in some of Gunung Botak’s waste sediments was 682 milligrams (mg) a kilogram, compared to 19 to 908 milligrams taken in the 1960s around Japan’s contaminated Minamata Bay, from where the crippling disease associated with mercury poisoning gets its name.
Buru joins other provinces like North Sulawesi, Jambi, Central Kalimantan, North Sulawesi, Southeast Sulawesi and Lombok where as many as 200,000 people are believed to be suffering from birth deformities and nervous disorders that characterize mercury poisoning.

The total funding of $1m will be split between projects in Argentina, Armenia, Benin, Iran and Lesotho, it was revealed this week.
The specific international programme was set up under the Convention’s Article 13 to support capacity building and technical assistance. Its aim is to improve the capacity of developing countries and those with economies in transition to implement their obligations under the Convention.
