Our mission is to discover and develop the earth’s resources in an efficient and responsible manner. Wolfden and its board members have an approach to exploration and development that is built on a foundation of widely accepted industry standards and best practices including the Performance Standards of the International Finance Corporation (IFC), e3 Plus Principles and Guidance—A Framework for Responsible Exploration, and ISO 26000.
We engage early in open honest dialogue with the local communities and stakeholders with respect to the environment. Wolfden respects and works hard to earn trust, cooperation and collaboration with the local communities. Wolfden recognizes that although it owns mineral rights to Pickett Mountain, it must also gain the support, participation and commitment of local communities and government.
Wolfden has met and will continue to meet with the local communities to explain the mining cycle, from exploration through development, production and reclamation, to ensure they understand what to expect, and when. On a regular basis, we plan to keep the local communities apprised of our current exploration activities and inform and remind them of any potential safety precautions.
We also recognize that our development and sustainability efforts are part of a broader set of activities being driven by the communities, governments and other organizations. As such, we plan to work closely and collaboratively with these groups at the appropriate stage to help ensure we are efficiently aligned with these programs. One of the key measures of success is the degree to which we positively impact the communities in which we operate.
