Contribute to the understanding and conservation of the environment and integrated approaches to land use planning within the locality of our projects.
Push for continual improvement of our environmental performance, while meeting gemstone mining industry best practice standards.
Push for continual improvement of our operational performance by being efficient and cost effective at the same time.
Ensure that our health and safety performance is better than the gemstone mining industry best practice standards.
Demonstrate respect for the cultures, customs and values of employees, community members and others who are affected by our activities.

An example of our commitment is to begin land rehabilitation as soon as possible so it can be returned to the local farmers. The process is outlined in the graphic above. We ensure too that the farmers are compensated for up to three years which is the period it will take for the excavated land to reach its full yield potential.
