Contributing to local community needs helps ensure that our most important stakeholders directly benefit from the development and operation of the Martabe Gold Mine and, as a consequence, support our ‘social license to operate’.
The community empowerment program consists of efforts to improve the community’s welfare and improve their quality of life. We carry out various programs, both short and long term, to encourage community independence. Agincourt resources sustainably implements this program to actively contribute to the community’s needs, and share mining operations’ benefits.
This program focuses on 15 local villages identified as Directly Affected Villages. Still, it does not rule out the possibility of implementing other programs that provide more comprehensive benefits to other locations besides the 15 selected villages.
Agincourt resources has formulated targets in five community empowerment areas that should be achieved within five years. The five areas are Health; Education; Local Business and Economic Development; Public Infrastructure, and Community Relations.
