Restoration of Vegetation

As a part of our sustainable development and preservation of natural resources, Drummond Ltd. developed our own landscape recovery program. Under this program, our goal is to restore and rehabilitate the vegetation cover in areas affected by our operations. Our plan seeks to recover and improve the areas interceded upon by the mine, nourish the fauna of the region, minimize and mitigate the effects of mining on the vegetation cover, and affect appropriate erosion control in zones with barren conditions.
Steps include:

    1. Recovery of topsoil
    2. Slope stabilization and improvement of areas
    3. Topsoil extension
    4. Fertilization
    5. Ground preparation
    6. Determination of seeds
    7. Sowing of seeds
    8. Seed protection
    9. Tree planting
    10. Quality control review
