Responsible Gold Mining Principles Report

The World Gold Council’s Responsible Gold Mining Principles (RGMP) is a framework that sets out clear expectations for consumers, investors and the downstream gold supply chain as to what constitutes responsible gold mining, and provides an additional level of assurance for our stakeholders.

Eldorado’s RGMP Report provides independent assurance that Eldorado is working to align with the RGMPs.

Conflict-Free Gold Report

We acknowledge that our license to operate includes demonstrating that gold has been extracted in a manner that does not cause, support, or benefit unlawful armed conflict, or contribute to serious human rights abuses or breaches of international humanitarian law. Eldorado is committed to this responsibility and has adopted the World Gold Council’s Conflict-Free Gold Standard.

Tailings Disclosure

Mine tailings storage facilities are one of Eldorado’s largest potential social, environmental and economic risks, and the Company takes great care to manage all tailings facilities in accordance with standards and regulations as well as align our designs and operations to international leading practices in order to mitigate risks associated with tailings storage.

In response to recent tailings dam failures and increased stakeholder awareness regarding tailings management, including a request from the Church of England Pensions Board, Eldorado has undertaken an internal review of all its tailings facilities.
