Stamp Program Objectives

In order to address the global mercury problem, Aladdin has developed the Strategic Abatement of Mercury and Poverty (STAMP) program. This program is designed to induce artisanal and all mercury mining users to adopt Aladdin's highly efficient mining technologies. The fundamental strategy looks to illustrate the economic advantages of HGP to the miners. Although being able to provide a safe work environment , safety benefits alone are not sufficient to convince indigent miners to abandon mercury processing. Ultimately, the success of the program must rely on its ability to provide the miners with a greater level of income than what they are able to derive when using mercury. The broad objectives of the STAMP Program are as follows:
1. Employ as many artisanal miners as is possible while maintaining the economical integrity of the program.
2. Work to eliminate the use of mercury when extracting gold in the customary artisanal alluvial concentrates and hard rock deposit areas.
3. Increase artisanal miner wages above the national average and provide bonuses based on gold revenues.
4. Create new employment opportunities and provide training for higher paid jobs in the trades, management, administration, accounting, mining, geology, process engineering, and attendant disciplines.
5. Provide a humanitarian fund to benefit the miners and their families.
6. Convert sites to farming land or forestry after gold is depleted from the properties.
7. Attract artisanal miners to proven gold reserves set aside by large scale mining companies and / or the government.
8. Make a profit for all stakeholders

Aladdin's Pledge To Social Responsibility

Aladdin's Pledge To Social Responsibility

Aladdin Technologies Inc. is dedicated to bringing environmentally friendly processes to host countries so that mineral wealth can be extracted in a way that does not endanger local ecosystems or the health of native people. This interest - coupled with a commitment to mutual respect and a close involvement with all stakeholders - is behind the company's drive to help the government and citizens of countries achieve maximum benefit from their mineral resources. We also recognize that shareholder interests are best served when - based on our ethical treatment of indigenous people and sensitivity to environmental issues - countries actively seek out business relationships with the company.

Social responsibility is not simply an abstract concept, but rather, a realistic moral command and business strategy. Aladdin will do whatever is reasonable to help the communities of people around the world with which it interacts. Therefore, to disregard the tenants of mutual respect and fair trade would not only be morally corrupt, but it could also damage shareholder value in company mineral endeavors. Aladdin endeavors to be a leader in the way in which it brings obligations of social responsibility to its business enterprises.

All that glitters can have a foul back side: Mercury and gold mining in the Democratic Republic of the Congo

Mercury has some characteristics that make it especially hazardous. It is a forceful neurotoxin that is especially harmful to pregnant women (more specifically, the foetus) and young children,(4) and in high concentrations it can lead to mental retardation, cerebral palsy, deafness, or blindness.(5) Furthermore, mercury does not degrade and is therefore a constant source of pollution.(6) Consequently, even though global use of mercury is decreasing, mercury is accumulating in the natural environment due to its characteristic as an increasing pollutant. In addition, as is the case with several hazardous substances, mercury’s reach as a pollutant is global; mercury that is being utilised in one area of the world often spreads and ends up in oceans and other bodies of water where it is absorbed by bacteria. Levels of mercury are then accumulated further up in the food chain and large maritime predators such as swordfish, seals and tuna, which are consumed by some human population groups, are found to contain the highest amounts of the toxic metal.(7) Evidence of the ingestion of mercury via consumption of these marine predators as part of the human diet has been seen across the globe. In France, 44% of children have mercury levels that exceed health recommendations.(8) Another example of the global reach of mercury through consumption of affected marine animals is seen in one of the most remote communities in the entire world, the Inuit in Qaanaaq, Northern Greenland,(9) where the diet of the Inuit consists largely of seal and whale meat.
