It is common for mining business that some of its operational areas are adjacent to communities which, in some regions, are indigenous. Protection of the rights and the cultural heritage of indigenous peoples is therefore one of the important issues for the Company.
The Company has conducted the preliminary assessment for all business units to identify whether there are indigenous communities in the surrounding areas. In case there is an operational site adjacent to indigenous peoples, the Company then carries out data collection to understand such peoples with regard to their substantial characteristics such as culture, belief, and religion. In addition, the cultural heritage management plan is developed for each specific site to ensure that the cultural heritage is respected and preserved as well as to avoid any violations against their rights.
