Environment

The Company has a long term vision of environmental stewardship particularly as an operator in Africa and has setup an Environmental Management Program that ensures the company operates in line with local legislation. This means prioritising environmental risk mitigation prior to any initial exploration spanning through to a period subsequent to closure of mining activities. Shanta Gold has a very long term vision of environmental stewardship particularly as an operator in Africa.

We seek to progressively develop and maintain environmental management systems that are consistent with internationally recognised standards. These processes and systems are adopted internally from senior management across all employee levels. We seek to maintain operations that limit their environmental footprint. We are striving to increase our self-sufficiency of food management through internal growing practices and consumption of foods (produce and meats) grown from local villages. We are striving to limit our waste impact through practices including composting and recycling. We believe that moving towards self-sufficiency is a long term process but starts with the adoption of best practices amongst our employees. We continually improve and regularly monitor, audit and review our environmental performance, including the reduction and prevention of impacts and more efficient use of resources.

We believe a strong culture towards environment stewardship is best complemented with self-monitoring review. We seek to exceed the minimum regulatory standards for our industry and set higher and stricter standards of our own which we continue to strive towards. We routinely monitor water, air, and soil quality. We mitigate the impact of our operations through to detailed mine closure and reclamation plans involving reforestation. We are building a modest nursery plantation for reforestation towards our final objective of minimising the impact of our operations on the environment.
