Mako recognizes that its work is likely to introduce its employees to communities whose economic and social development, cultures, and traditions may differ from their own. We expect our employees to respect the cultures and traditions of these communities.
We aim to contribute to the wider economic, social, and environmental well-being of those communities in which we conduct our exploration programs and of which we are a part. These communities are of strategic importance to us. Our objective is to build long-term, sustainable relationships. Without their approval and cooperation, our operations would be far less efficient and effective. Further, we expect our staff to abide by the applicable laws and regulations of each country, region town or local community in which we operate. In the absence of legislation, we fully expect that our work will conform to the mining and exploration industry’s “best practices.”
