INDIGENOUS PEOPLES POLICY
Indigenous Peoples Policy
Mawson Gold Ltd (the “Company” or "Mawson") is committed to developing and maintaining relationships of mutual understanding and respect with all the indigenous peoples and stakeholders of the areas and countries in which the Company operates.
The Company and its employees recognize and respect indigenous traditions, culture and heritage. The Company will protect heritage sites in accordance with legislation (as a minimum). Where appropriate, it will conduct archaeological and anthropological studies in order to identify sites of cultural significance to ensure their protection and preservation and avoid accidental damage of those sites.
We will ensure that our employees and contractors approach the Company’s activities at culturally significant sites with understanding and recognition of the desire of indigenous peoples to fulfil their responsibilities within their traditional culture.
Mawson Gold Ltd aims to develop positive working relationships with local and indigenous peoples based on mutual trust and respect. To achieve this aim the Company will, wherever reasonable, provide local and indigenous groups with the opportunity to participate directly or indirectly in employment opportunities and where appropriate, provide the opportunity for local and indigenous businesses to tender for the supply of goods and services to the Company.
