All mining digs holes. Responsible mining does its best to fix them. But does it leave a cohesive and healthy community behind it?
Constructive mining uses mining to build something the local economy and community need now and in the future.
Leading stakeholder engagement practice linked to mining projects has returned a consistent message from communities: “We want our natural resources to be developed much more usefully.“ In reality they feel often let down by the mining industry and the authorities that control it.
Constructive mining not only delivers on this community demand; it also earns a social license to operate as it gains permission from the people who it impacts. Its conceptualisation, design and implementation is transparently conducted in effective partnerships with the impacted community.
