Almaden has been consulting in one way, shape or form with local people at Ixtaca since 2001. This video gives a brief overview of our activities since the beginning.
Accompanied by representatives of GMI Consulting, Almaden has recently been conducting formal consultations with people in the local communities. These consultations are an extension of our efforts to describe the project and solicit questions from local people.
The feedback from these meetings is crucial in the formation of our Social Investment Plan and will help frame aspects of project and related infrastructure design.
The two videos below show some of these consultations.
Almaden was pleased to host a visit by a representative of Women in Mining, Mexico, in 2018 as part of its efforts to promote training and employment opportunities for women at the Ixtaca project.
To date, Almaden has taken a total of approximately 480 people, drawn from local communities, to visit 24 working mines in Mexico.
Almaden holds monthly Community Dialogues wherein community members are invited to attend discussions with experts on a diverse range of issues relating to the mining industry such as an overview of Mexican Mining Law, Human Rights and Mining, mineral processing, explosives, water in mining, risk management, and mine infrastructure
Here's what community members have to say about the project.
