Environment

Orezone conducts its exploration and development activities in ways that minimize the disturbance to the environment and people. Baseline environmental studies and an environmental impact assessment study were initiated at Bomboré in 2009. Updated baselines studies were completed in February 2015 and the Environmental and Social Impact Assessment and Relocation Plan approvals received in May 2016. The area of the project is characterized by lands with poor to modest agricultural potential. Subsistence farming and cattle breeding are the main activities of the local population, supplemented by artisanal gold mining. Indigenous vegetation and fauna have been largely destroyed due to the demographic pressure and the artisanal gold mining. A large industrial mining project represents a unique opportunity to improve the local farming techniques, improve the access to water resources, address the environmental issues created by the artisanal gold miners and revegetate the area as part of the mine closure and rehabilitation plan.
