Corporate Communication Standards, Practice and Issues Access to Information: A Key to Building Trust in the Minerals Sector

Descripción del documento: 
To maintain focus, the present paper is limited to an assessment of the activities of public companies traded on stock exchanges in Canada, Australia, the United States of America and Great Britain (which comprise the vast majority of all publicly-traded mining entities), and patterns of information disclosure around the mine cycle (the full range of operations from exploration through mine closure and reclamation). The paper examines existing patterns of information dissemination together with attitudes and policies towards the disclosure of information to stakeholders, as seen and experienced by the industry.
