Our Global Reach
Our Vision: We envision a formalized, environmentally sound, and socially responsible Artisanal Gold Mining Sector that supplies Responsible Artisanal Gold™ to markets, attracts socially responsible investors and buyers, and encourages ethical consumer behaviours.
A Sector universally recognized as a first-rate mechanism of transfer of wealth from rich to poor populations.
We are pleased to announce the release of the Artisanal Gold Council Toolkit: “Estimating mercury use and documenting practices in ASGM: Methods and tools”, produced in collaboration with UN Environment. The purpose of the toolkit is to assist countries that are developing National Action Plan for ASGM, in their efforts to understand and produce a national overview of the sector. The toolkit is available for download here.
Our Tatelu, Indonesia project site recently welcomed the Canadian Head Of Mission, H.E. Peter MacArthur. The local community conducted a traditional welcoming ritual to kick off the visit, which included a discussion with the community women at the information centre and even operating the newly installed rock crusher. The event garnered a large media presence, and formalizes the presence of the Government of Canada at the project site.
A National Action Plan (NAP) Inception Workshop on Mercury in the Artisanal and Small-Scale Gold Mining was held in Quito, Ecuador on July 17-19, 2018 with various stakeholders to introduce the project and bring the stakeholders together. The workshop was attended by miners, NGOs, private sector, representatives of the Ministry of Environment, Mines and Health, academia, civil society, and others.
