(Bettercoal Press Release) Bettercoal completes first site-assessment at Drummond Ltd’s Colombian operations
August 22, 2014

Bettercoal has reached another milestone in completing its first ever site-assessment at Drummond Ltd’s Colombian operations. Independent third-party assessors conducted a comprehensive review of the company’s mining operations against the Bettercoal Code, focusing on the assessment of both management systems and performance measures. The independent assessor’s report on the mine’s ethical, social and environmental performance indicates that Drummond Ltd.’s operations are in good alignment with the Bettercoal Code. Any opportunities for improvement were incorporated into a time-bound Corrective Action Plan produced and agreed upon as part of this process and that the mining company has committed to implement. Importantly, the process will provide the members of Bettercoal (coal buyers) with robust, objective information that enables them to make informed purchasing decisions.
