Community

Surgold is building relationships with the local communities (i.e., the Paramaccaners), and, as part of the ESIA process, has conducted baseline environmental and social studies, which will allow the project to stand as a positive example of responsible mineral resource development in Suriname.

We have held public meetings with communities and interested groups to discuss the findings of the ESIA and to gain their feedback and recommendations. Furthermore, Surgold and the Paramacca community have entered into a Memorandum of Understating that includes the creation of a development fund, terms for local employment and procurement and other matters.

Newmont is committed to continue its close engagement with government and local community members to advance the development of the project in a manner that generates sustainable economic and social benefits for the people of Suriname.

Environment

In order to comply with industry best practices and international standards, an Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) was undertaken by an independent, international, environmental consultancy, Environmental Resources Management.

An ESIA is a study used to understand how the project’s proposed activities will change the environment and affect the people living and working in the area. The ESIA identified and assessed the impacts associated with the planned gold mine and developed measures to be put in place to avoid or reduce negative impacts and maximize benefits.

In order for Surgold to obtain a right to mine, the Government of Suriname must approve Surgold’s feasibility study and the Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA).The full ESIA can be accessed in the documents section.

Documents

Screening and Scoping Documents

We have carried out stakeholder consultation and engagement in order to ensure that we consider the fullest range of impacts possible in the ESIA. These documents show the minutes from the first set of public meetings held in relation to the project and the presentations we have used to communicate with people interested in, or affected by it. The Terms of Reference for the ESIA describe the structure and scope of the environmental and social assessment.

Disclosure Documents

Public meetings were held from July 2011 to November 2012 to present the report and receive comments on its content. The minutes of these meetings are available to download here.

Assessment

The ESIA report presents the baseline studies completed and the findings of the environmental and social impact assessment.

Correspondence with NIMOS

NIMOS is the National Institute of Environment and Development. ERM has used NIMOS’ guidelines to prepare the ESIA. These documents show the correspondence Surgold and ERM have had with NIMOS.
