[PDF] Good Practice Guide: Indigenous Peoples and Mining

Author: Intl. Council on Mining and Metals, Published on: 15 October 2010

This Guide represents a key milestone on a journey that began for ICMM in 2004, when we started working to support more constructive relationships between Indigenous Peoples and mining companies...based on respect, meaningful engagement and mutual benefit. Developing implementation guidance was then set as our next task. This Guide is the outcome...[T]he Guide is...intended to...be adaptable by companies and communities to their own circumstances. The Guide is a milestone rather than an end point...
