Response by GeoProMining Gold LLC

Author: GeoProMining Gold LLC, Published on: 29 July 2019

...The report raises several troubling and at times inaccurate allegations about either GPM Gold’s or its affiliate’s environmental and human rights performance. These matters have been responded to in considerable detail to the authors of the report but they have failed to make it public...GPM Gold is committed to sound environment stewardship and works to achieve this through implementation of monitoring of air emissions, water discharges, underground water and soil quality which are carried out at our operations, including at the mines, processing facility and nearby localities on a monthly basis. Such monitoring is performed by licenced experts authorised by the relevant environmental authorities...Our facilities undergo regular safety inspections by state authorities and safety certificates are issued for each facility which are required for operating the facilities, and GPM Gold has successfully obtained these in the past. GPM Gold regularly analyses potential risks, develops measures to reduce these risks and reduce consequences of industrial accidents and conducts worker-safety training and updates internal safety regulations...GPM Gold has taken, and will continue to take, a good-faith effort to engage broadly and constructively on social, environmental and human rights matters.
