Treasury Metals is committed to development of all its assets with recognition of the unique needs of communities. We are in the process of developing its policies and principles related to sustainable development for its mining projects including the Goliath Gold Complex. These policies and principles will be based on ethical business practices and good corporate governance, health, safety and environmental performance, contributions to social and economic development of local communities and effective and transparent engagement with Indigenous and public stakeholders.
Treasury Metals supports the Mining Association of Canada’s Towards Sustainable Mining commitment (see https://mining.ca) and the PDAC Framework for Responsible Mining (see www.pdac.ca). Within that framework, the World Council for Sustainable Development states, “Corporate social responsibility is the continuing commitment by business to behave ethically and to contribute to economic development while improving the quality of life of the workforce and their families as well as of the local community and society at large.” Treasury Metals works in a number of areas to achieve these goals. Early on, the Company adopted a “hire locally, purchase locally” philosophy. We have had great success to date in hiring local people and purchasing goods and services from over 70 area businesses.
