Community Engagement

In any country, and for responsible mining, it all starts with communities. For Peru, the key to a project’s “social license” is community support. The communities determine the “social license” to continue to explore, develop and operate and is the one constant that survives time. It is a key to success for Plateau.

We live and breathe a culture of being “hosted” by our communities. We are guests. It is understanding that is the driving force behind all of our community relations, social programs and successes we have achieved over the past 10 years at the Macusani Plateau. The continuity of our presence and work through a cyclical business, local employment efforts and ongoing information sharing, listening and engagement are keys to that success. It is this what has maintained community support for nearly half a generation and will be the guiding principles and key to ongoing success for the future.

No matter whether it is big or small, we need our host communities to believe in us, our projects and the future they hold. We listen, communicate and we all work together along the way.
