We understand that stakeholder engagement is the process by which the company constantly communicates with its stakeholders to share information, understand stakeholder concerns and expectations, resolve issues and maximise opportunities for cooperation.

The stakeholders of PT Agincourt Resources are a diverse group with a wide range of views, beliefs, expectations and needs. They include the local communities surrounding the Martabe Gold Mine, government agencies, legislative bodies, politicians, non-government organisations, suppliers, contractors, investors, academics, media, customary and religious leaders and also site employees and their families. Effective stakeholder engagement is an essential element in maintaining and strengthening the Company’s social licence to operate.

Martabe Gold Mine is the first mine in South Tapanuli, and so many local stakeholders have a limited understanding of mining and management of environmental and social impacts associated with mining operations. To help ensure a good understanding of operations at the mine amongst local stakeholders, the Company maintains an active broad-based communication program since commencement of the project, and the approach has been to:

  • Identify stakeholders and understand their needs, concerns and aspirations
  • Actively seek dialogue and build trust with all stakeholder groups, including potentially marginalised groups such as women, the elderly and youth
  • Provide timely and accurate information to stakeholders about all aspects of operations at the Martabe Gold Mine
  • Show patience in dealing with others and respect for their viewpoints, beliefs, cultural values and practices
  • Support local employment and implement fair and transparent processes for recruitment and procurement
  • Support regulatory bodies in the discharge of their obligations under regulation, including the implementation of approval processes and site inspections, and meet all government reporting requirements in an accurate and timely manner
  • Facilitate open reporting of concerns and grievances by stakeholders in relation to our activities.
