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.

Children In Hazardous Work (Mining-Page 32)

Estimates place the current total of children in hazardous work at 115 million.
The chemical of major concern in mining right now is mercury, because it is very commonly
used. A cross-sectional study of children between the ages of 9 and 17 working in an artisanal
gold mine found that they had levels of mercury as high as 41 μg/l in urine and 100 μg/l in blood.
The commonly accepted reference values for mercury levels in children are 0.7–0.4 μg/l in urine
and 1.0–0.8 μg/l in blood. A medical examination of the working children showed severe nervous system impairment in comparison with non-working children. Neurological tests revealed
the children involved in mining needed twice as long to perform basic cognitive and reflex tests
as non-working children. More than half of the working children were clinically diagnosed with
severe mercury intoxication.
 Symptoms of mercury intoxication are uncontrollable tremors, particularly of facial muscles; mood swings, including irritability and nervousness; insomnia; neuromuscular changes, such as weakness and muscle atrophy; headaches; and decline in cognitive
function. High levels of mercury exposure can lead to kidney and respiratory failure and death
