Where we operate is our local community

We operate in regions with long traditions of mining and neighbouring communities that support mining. We proactively and openly work with local communities to identify, understand and mitigate potential concerns and impacts.

In addition, we support local communities and aim to be good community neighbors with both community contributions and lending a helping hand where and when needed. Our goal is to partner with initiatives and organizations to strengthen the overall quality of life in the communities we operate in and where our employees live and work.

We support organizations that provide direct services to local communities, are registered charities and support our values, prioritizing the following four core areas:

  • Health / Social / Welfare
  • Leadership / Civic / Sports
  • Children / Education
  • Environment

Case Study

Pinto Valley

Mining as a family business at Pinto Valley

Dennis Palmer, Pinto Valley’s Operations Support Superintendent, is the third in his family to work for our operation. His maternal grandfather, Ron Ray, was General Foreman at Pinto Valley. Ron worked at Pinto Valley for 36 years and retired in 2009. Dennis’ father still works at Pinto Valley as an X-Ray technician. Dennis’ daughter, Madison Palmer, started at Pinto Valley as a summer intern in 2020 and will be joining us in this role again in 2021. While acknowledging that mining is in his blood, Dennis stays for “the busy pace, the interactivity, being in the field and helping to solve problems.” (As reported in the Globe Miami Times, August 18, 2020)
