Socio-Economic & Community Commitments

Mining companies today are committed to working with communities and governments to create meaningful benefits in the regions where they operate. Through various agreements, efforts are focused on such goals as training, employment, and business. Our mining members report regularly on their activities and successes towards meeting their commitments, and you will find those reports on their company websites. Links to the mines’ socio-economic agreements and other resources are found below.
