Almaden's Environmental Responsibility


Almaden's Corporate and Environmental Responsibility

We work hard to build sustainable development that results in long-term prosperous relationships.
--Morgan Poliquin, President & CEO
For over thirty years, Almaden has operated responsible mineral exploration in North America. We are committed to environmental stewardship and believe that successful exploration both creates wealth and fosters lasting social benefits. We work hard to build sustainable development that results in long-term prosperous relationships.

Almaden manages its exploration programs in harmony with the surrounding communities.  We aspire to make a positive social difference where we live and work.  By supporting and financing projects that come from local groups, educating and employing local people, and respecting the culture, property, and individuality of each community’s needs, Almaden is committed to improving the quality of life in communities we work with and within.
