We respect and enforce socially acceptable contact with indigenous populations by financially supporting local social projects. We are committed to making a positive impact in the communities where we work. We recognise that our role in social responsibility extends to all aspects of our activities including health, safety, environment and social responsibility. We strive to understand and integrate social factors into our decision-making process at all stages of our activities from exploration and operations through to closure and reclamation.
We have supported and financed communities in Peru, Huarvey. We supported primary schools, providing computers and books. Furthermore, we helped implement communal infrastructure.
