The organization, established to tackle challenges linked to artisanal and small-scale gold mining (ASGM), takes center stage in “New Frontiers.”

Understanding Artisanal and Small-Scale Gold Mining:
Artisanal and small-scale gold mining is a global phenomenon, providing livelihoods for millions while often operating in remote and environmentally sensitive areas. The AGC addresses the associated issues, including child labor, unsafe working conditions, and environmental degradation, with a nuanced and comprehensive approach that preserves economic opportunities.

Mission and Vision of the Artisanal Gold Council:
Founded with a commitment to improving the well-being of miners and their communities, the AGC strives to transform the gold mining sector into a socially and environmentally responsible industry. The organization envisions a future where responsible mining practices coexist with thriving local communities and ecosystems.

Key Initiatives:

Capacity Building:
The AGC focuses on empowering miners and communities through training on safer and more efficient mining techniques.

Mercury-Free Mining:
Actively promoting mercury-free gold mining, the AGC works on alternative extraction methods to mitigate health and environmental risks. To show AGC’s commitment to mercury-free gold mining, they work with the international community to develop approaches and implement solutions in line with the Minamata Convention on Mercury, an agreement for healthy, environmentally sound and responsible mining.

Market Access and Fair Trade:
The organization ensures fair market access for artisanal gold, connecting with responsible buyers and promoting fair trade practices.

Environmental Stewardship:
Collaborating with local communities, the AGC minimizes the ecological footprint of ASGM through reforestation, water management, and other initiatives.

Social Responsibility:
Engaging with local communities, the AGC supports community development projects and advocates for miners’ rights.

The AGC exemplifies responsible and sustainable gold mining through its multifaceted approach. As it continues to pioneer innovative solutions and advocate for responsible practices, the organization plays a crucial role in shaping the future of the gold mining industry.
