Our business spans a wide variety of cultural, economic and social landscapes.

Given the diverse environments we operate in, establishing good relationships built on trust with host communities is key to acquiring and maintaining our social licence to operate. We understand the influential role that mining companies can play in the development of local communities and their supporting economies. We strive as much as possible to develop harmonious relationships with the communities we operate in.

Mineral wealth contributes to community development, growth and transformation both on social and economic levels. We fully recognise this, and the fact that communities and governments have got heightened expectations concerning the role that mining companies play in the development of the host communities and the country’s economy at large. We do our best to fulfil our moral duty in tackling some of the most prevalent social economic issue in our communities such as low economic growth, unemployment, inadequate infrastructure and access to services including healthcare, education, food and water security.

In framing our approach to social contribution, we are guided by a set of standards that outline the philosophy, scope and application of our community development initiatives. Our focus areas include:

  • Education and skills development
  • Infrastructure development
  • Enterprise development
  • Public health initiatives
  • Girl child empowerment
  • Gender equality

We try to create opportunities where communities can benefit from both economically as well as in social opportunities. Engaging with communities throughout the life cycle of our operations is crucial to creating shared value and our ability to create a positive and enduring legacy.
