Pan African Resources strives to promote opportunities for local communities, while minimising any negative social impacts caused by our mining operations. We monitor, measure and manage the social and economic impacts created by our operations in line with our approved SLPs.
We support the communities around our operations by:
• Driving local development projects for sustainable welfare
• Encouraging our suppliers to source local labour
• Proactively building relationships with local leaders and ward councillors at the mines
In terms of the MPRDA, mines are required to develop and implement comprehensive SLPs, human resource development programmes, mine community development plans, a housing and living conditions plan, employment equity plan, and other processes to save jobs and manage downscaling and/or closure. Progress reports are submitted
annually to the DMR.
Positively impacting our communities
We continue to drive various community-focused development projects in the areas around our operations. The group also promotes responsible supply-chain management by encouraging our suppliers to support local economic development where possible.
To minimise any negative social impacts from our mining operations, we monitor, measure and manage our social and economic impact in line with approved SLPs.
