COVID-19 Response

The COVID-19 pandemic has provided additional challenges for health & safety of our employees. The Company has taken precautionary measures for screening of all employees at its Marmato mine and non-essential administrative staff are working remotely. We have supported the local communities by providing masks, medical equipment, supplies and sanitation kits to the local hospitals and groceries to families who have been economically affected by the COVID-19 crisis. The company will continue to monitor developments related to the situation and revise its response plans accordingly.

Human Rights & Diversity

We anchor our position on fundamental sources such as the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights. Although we recognize Governments have the primary duty to ensure the respect, promotion and protection of Human Rights, Aris Gold believes businesses play an important positive role in the respect of Human Rights in the communities where we operate, not only as catalysts, but also as safeguards in our areas of operation. More information about the company’s approach to Human Rights can be found in its Human Rights Policy.

Human Rights & Diversity

We thrive to create an inclusive organizational culture that promotes equality of opportunity. Aris Gold looks to attract, develop and retain the best talent and create a working environment that is inclusive and diverse, where everyone is treated without discrimination. We value talent regardless of age, race, gender, background, sexuality, religion or physical impairment. Diversity strengthens us by promoting unique viewpoints and challenging us to think beyond our traditional frames of reference.
