We have fully realised that the biological diversity is closely related to human physical and mental health, air, drinking water, soil, climate and environment. Mining activities may cause land surface damage, and if not managed properly, exploration, mining and smelting activities may have negative impacts on the ecological environment. We do our best to protect the fragile ecosystem, habitats and endangered species are from being damaged, and have made reasonable plans for mine closure responsibly. We are making every effort to promote the construction of green mines and garden-like mines, and strive to explore a green mining path that is compatible with mine production, construction and ecological protection.
We pay attention to the protection of ecosystems (wetlands, wildlife corridors, protected areas and agricultural land) and refrain from exploration and mining activities in sensitive areas such as nature reserves and ecological red lines; To protect rare animals and plants and their natural habitats, carry out biodiversity survey and assessment before the implementation of new projects, and formulate diversified measures such as "avoidance, mitigation, compensation and protection" according to the assessment results, so as to minimize the impact of mineral resource development activities on the ecological system of the project site and its surrounding areas.
We adopt responsible biodiversity management method across all mines under production and operation, do our best to ensure that fragile ecosystems, habitats and endangered species will not be harmed, and formulate responsible plans for mine closures. Our Biodiversity Action Plan (BAP) specifically includes the following measures:
