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.

Modern Mines Leak: Given the Chance, Pebble Mine Will Too

Today I’d like to focus on modern mining accidents closer to home. Take, for example, the Grouse Creek gold and silver mine in Idaho, which began operating in 1994.  Located near Jordan Creek – a stream federally designated as critical salmon habitat – this modern mine experienced problems from the start.  Construction activities caused a landslide which buried 100 yards of Jordan Creek.  Less than a year into operation, a tailings impoundment began leaking and numerous cyanide spills had occurred.  The mine had amassed over 250 water quality violations by the time it closed in 1997. In 1999, cyanide was still leaking from the mine into waters that were home to endangered Chinook salmon, steelhead and bull trout. The federal government issued a consent order to clean up the mine under CERCLA.  
Or take the Gilt Edge mine in the Black Hills of South Dakota.  This gold and silver mine operated from 1988 to 1996. Shortly after mining began, cyanide leaked into the groundwater and nearby Strawberry and Bear Butte Creeks. The mine began generating acid mine drainage in 1992.  This acid drainage left area streams unable to support a viable fish population. It was designated as a Superfund site in December 2000.
Closer to the proposed Pebble Mine, the Fort Knox gold mine north of Fairbanks spilled 45,000 gallons of cyanide water solution after a bulldozer struck a supply line in August 2012.  Officials say it was cleaned up successfully, although a long-term sampling program has yet to assess the extent of the soil contamination.
