Drummond Ltd. and the Municipalities of Becerril and Codazzi Discussed Modification of the Environmental License of the El Descanso Project
June 14, 2016
At Drummond Ltd., we hold annual informational meetings to communicate the results of the environmental impact study with the surrounding communities in the area of influence of our mining projects. For this reason, we have opened our doors to the residents of the municipalities of Becerril and Agustín Codazzi, who have visited with the purpose of becoming acquainted with everything related to the modification of the environmental license of the El Descanso mining project.
For Drummond, it is important that the towns adjacent to our mining project be continually informed of the actions and modifications related to environmental impact issues. This allows Drummond to show the state of progress of the revegetation, the management of water sources, the existing fauna and the state of restoration of the areas affected by mining. Likewise, it is important that residents learn about the protection of our buffer areas, the prohibition of hunting and fishing inside the borders of our projects, and also the faunal rescue and relocation work. This effort complements our strategies to return the areas of operation to the same condition as – or in better condition than – they were in when our operations began.
