Americorp International Group’s (AIG) team operates mines and assets, creating value through exploration, project development and technical excellence.
what we do
With extensive history in the mining industry, AIG’s Mining Division is one of the industry’s most successful and well-respected metal producers. Through responsible mining, we believe we can create a stronger business and value for all our stakeholders.
Our Team works in close partnership with AIG’s product groups, and is accountable for finding, shaping, developing and delivering a portfolio of options for Tier 1 assets. They also focus on finding safer, smarter and more efficient ways to manage AIG’s resources and operations.
Environmental management is of great importance to us and we take great strides to identify, assess and control risks from start to end. We connect with stakeholders and take their opinions into account when we make decisions.
Our goal is to minimize impacts while doing the most we can to make lasting changes that will benefit the environment. We focus on actions central to sustainable development including effective management of inputs like water, energy, and land, and outputs such as waste, drainage, and land restoration. We also take part in various conservation efforts to ensure that lasting environmental benefits are made.
No resources or exploration efforts are made within or near the boundaries of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Protected Areas Categories I to IV, unless the plan meets all regulatory requirements, stakeholder expectations and benefits the protected area. If there is a chance that impacts done to the ecosystems could result in extinction of an IUCN Red List Threatened Species, we will not operate. We do not dispose of mined waste or other material into rivers or any marine environment.
We are dedicated in ensuring that all operations are completed responsibly and that we treat all of our communities and people with respect for their health and safety. We also hold ourselves responsible that the local and global environment is met with the same respect.
Managing human rights risks are of great importance to us and we have strong processes that ensure this. Human rights issues that are associated with mining activities are monitored and we aim to build long lasting relationships to support the community.
Our value chain
Our value that is generated through our operations is shared with the government and communities such as local businesses. Some ways we share our value are through taxes, employment, local investments.We want to be transparent to our communities about our mining processes and produce all materials in a responsible manner.
There are risks associated with our industry as we operate in many areas of the world. Therefore, there are many economic, social and political factors that we must manage to maintain our license.
Where we do it
AIG’s Mining Division grows through acquisition and diversification, primarily through joint ventures with other companies. Today, we operate all over the world from North America, and South America to Australia, Africa and Asia. We continue to expand through our exploration and project pipeline.
How we do it
Mining provides us with the minerals needed to power our economy and lifestyle, but it is resource-intensive. Therefore, we form and maintain community relationships that ensure that our mining is sustainable and responsible.
We focus on continuously improving all areas of our operations and maintain the highest standards of social and environmental practices. This allows us to invest in our growth and provide our shareholders with competitive returns.
Building or strengthening
We aim to build and strengthen the local economy and communities through job creation, training, the creation of new businesses and taxes. We hope to enhance the asset base of a community through infrastructure and social investments.
Partnering with local communities can help create and increase opportunities for sustainable development. We value our relationships with communities and governments of areas we operate in and we are committed to putting the health and safety of the people and the environment first.
We ensure that all processes and operations are socially and environmentally sustainable.
