SRQ is committed to creating shareholder value through proactive environmental management and community engagement.


The Company strives to conduct responsible and sustainable exploration and mining development. To that goal, the Company will ensure that wherever possible and necessary it will develop local policies and procedures that will minimize the impact of exploration and mining on the natural landscape and local communities, and which will ensure a safe and healthy environment for the communities and natural resources, including wildlife, that may reside in the areas where exploration and possible subsequent mining may occur.

The above principles will also apply in respect of the approach to health and safety for all employees and those individuals, communities and companies that may become involved with or affected by the planned exploration programme, and all subsequent evaluation and mining programmes.

  • Build on international best practices for exploration and mining
  • Implement environmental and social best practices
  • Implement labor best practices
  • Comply with national laws and regulations, and in compliance with International Performance Standards and Environmental Guidelines
  • Establish and implement appropriate communication, consultation and information disclosure plan and procedures taking all stakeholders into consideration

Appropriate community liaison, disclosure and engagement will be undertaken at all stages by SRQ. The level of consultation and disclosure will increase with the increased scale of activities.
