Disclosure Required 2016 Rosebel 2016 Essakane 2016 Westwood
Identify where ASM takes place on, or adjacent to, the Company’s sites, or where it presents risks to the Company’s operations. For the reporting period of 2016, there were three groups of small-scale miners (SSM) operating in the Royal Hill pit area. In the Mayo area, there were two active groups. Furthermore, there were individual ASMers entering the J-zone pit, Royal Hill pit and Mayo on a regular basis. ASM come and go with discoveries of gold around our mining operations. They are in Falagountou, at the Essakane site and in Gosey. None
Report the number of ASM operations that take place on, or adjacent to, the site and describe the situation. The total number of groups (12 individuals per group) was 5 for SSM on Company's operation. The individual ASM entering the pit varied from 15 to 300 on a daily basis. ASM come and go with discoveries of gold around our mining operations. They are in Falagountou, at the Essakane site and in Gosey. None
What is the nature of the risks? Answer yes or no to the topics below and provide a brief description:
i. Environmental risks (e.g., mercury and cyanide pollution, dumping of tailings into river systems) There are identified environmental risks, namely contamination of the SSM mining area with mercury, motor oil, and domestic waste. There is also disruption in the natural water ways in the areas mined leading to flooding and other environment related risks. Yes, the deterioration of biodiversity and water quality, risk for animals N/A
ii. Risk with access and with security teams Yes, SSM tend to work in areas that are remote and difficult to access. This poses all types of risks to security and CR personnel accessing these areas. In interacting with SSM and ASM enforcement personnel, security personnel are harrassed, provocated and/or violently insulted which can lead to altercations. Yes, risk of falling into a hole, access issues, risk of drifts collapsing on artisanal miners N/A
iii. Hazard risks to health Yes, the accumulation of mercury used for processing ore in local creeks poses risks to those who consume fish from the contaminated surface water. Inhalation of mercury during recovery of gold can be directly and indirectly, transported by air, potentially leading to health problems. Yes, respiratory illnesses, waterborne diseases, cyanide/mercury poisoning, risk of drifts collapsing on artisanal miners. N/A
If you stated “yes” to any of the risks above, what actions were taken to manage and mitigate these risks? Ongoing consultations on the collaborative multi-stakeholder platform in which SSM, the Government and RGM are present. Within this setting, alternatives for SSM are discussed. Instances where SSM are tolerated on the RGM concession, signed protocols are implemented to control and mitigate risks identified. This platform also provides the opportunity for constructive engagement with SSM. IAMGOLD encourages the association of artisanal miners to attend awareness-raising sessions on the risks of using chemicals, on child labour and on water pollution. N/A
