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.

Mafia operating on Mount Botak: legislator

"With regard to mercury (waste contamination), we all -- the provincial government, especially the Environmental Service, and the provincial legislative body (DPRD) -- must take it seriously, as it will have a negative impact on the lives of the people there," he noted.

If mercury residues contaminate food, the central and regional governments will have to bear the brunt.

This is especially critical since mercury will harm natural resources, especially in the sea, and pollute marine creatures and enter the food chain. Hence, when export quality fish contaminated with mercury is consumed, it can have wide-ranging repercussions.

Fish eaters beware! European report warns of mercury threat

The report, released by the European Environmental Agency (EEA) highlights that mercury contamination remains "a significant risk to both the global environment and human health".
The report noted that the dietary advice on fish consumption is of particular importance to women and children, who may be most affected. The report gave reference to safety advice on fish consumption from EU Member States, with Poland warning pregnant women and children against eating swordfish, shark, tuna and Panga fish.
Children under 16 are advised against eating swordfish, shark or marlin in the UK, while adults are warned against eating more than one portion of the aforementioned fish per week. The Netherlands advises all against the consumption of shark and swordfish.
Diet is the "primary way" in which people in Europe are exposed to mercury. When mercury is present in oceans, rivers and lakes, it is converted to the toxic methylmercury which is absorbed by fish and other animals.

Minerals bill to empower small scale miners

Lokeris said under mining regulations strengthening, the government through the Mineral Protection Unit Police will soon ensure registration of miners, formalisation of artisanal small scale miners and zoning of mining areas among others.
The Police Minerals Protection Unit, commandant Jescah Keigomba said a number of small miners countrywide use mining methods that are toxic to environment, citing the use of mercury in gold purification.

Environmental crimes are on the rise, so are efforts to prevent them

Illegal mining: Illegal mining is prevalent in Africa, Latin America and parts of Asia, where it is increasingly becoming an issue of major public concern. It has severe environmental impacts, most notably mercury pollution from artisanal gold mining, destruction of natural flora and fauna, pollution, landscape degradation and radiation hazards.

Ghana: Mahama Trashed Akyem Lives in the Atiwa-Atweredu Environs

I am also implacably incensed by the hypocritical protestations of the NDC minority because for most of the past 20-odd years when the entire Okyeman, in particular Akyem-Abuakwa, sub-region was effectively laid to waste and our hitherto potable waterbodies poisoned by the unconscionable use of mercury and other deadly chemicals and literally rendered undrinkable, it was these same National Democratic Congress’ leadership that led the charge by inviting Chinese miners with excavators to wantonly peel away the hitherto largely pristine and undisturbed vegetation cover of the land.

The Toxic Toll of Indonesia's Gold Mines

Millions of people in 70 countries across Asia, Africa, and South America have been exposed to high levels of mercury as small-scale mining has proliferated over the past decade. The United Nations Environment Programme estimates that at least 10 million miners, including at least four million women and children, are working in small “artisanal” gold mines, which produce as much as 15 percent of the world’s gold.

Baby born with one eye and no nose in Indonesia, mercury poisoning suspected

Mercury, a well-documented cause of birth defects and nervous system disorders, is used around the world at gold mining processing sites to separate gold from ore. According to a United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) report, Indonesia has one of the highest numbers of artisanal mines (independent small gold mines, often illegal and generally unsafe) in the world, exposing workers and communities to harmful chemicals.

Venezuela: where a crisis and a “gold rush” are creating an environmental disaster

After the soil and rock are crushed, a toxic muddy liquid is released through a pipe into a pond, which still has a gold content of over 60 per cent. This mercury threatens the country’s largest freshwater reserves, such as the Caroni Basin. “Our community regularly loses cows who drink contaminated water,” explains Coremoto Francis. According to a study by the Central University of Venezuela (UCV) published in 2010, 74 per cent of schools inspected in El Callao had above-average levels of mercury. Since then, the number of illegal mining operations and the amount of mercury used have continued to increase.
