CHANGING EXPECTATIONS: Future Social and Economic Realities for Mineral Exploration

Descripción del documento: 
It is very much in the interests of the industry to meet the growing expectations regarding social responsibility. Beginning immediately, all exploration projects should include a plan and budget to manage social issues constructively. Failure to do so risks conflictive situations over social, economic, cultural and environmental issues. Companies that fail to gain a social licence affect not only their own credibility but also the credibility of the industry as a whole.
