A new video and technical factsheet on the ARM project in Peru
At the international level, artisanal and small-scale mining organizations (ASMOs) have a major social, environmental and economic impact. The way gold is extracted is especially important nowadays, at a time when economic activity is changing, with companies trying to improve their practices by focusing not only on financial gain but also on improving communities’ living conditions and reducing environmental impacts.
In order to strengthen this process, an alternative model has been developed: Fairmined, Fair Mining Standard, a certification system that ensures the gradual adoption by the artisanal and small-scale mining (ASM) sector of better social and environmental practices and greater access to the formal market.
