While at the Keystone Center forum, Pebble Watch heard of a resource we think would be helpful to shareholders. The International Council on Mining and Metals (ICMM) offers a 'toolkit' (in PDF form) to help mining companies and indigenous peoples navigate issues surrounding engagement and participation, impact management, agreements, benefits sharing and dealing with grievances.
Anglo American, a Pebble developer, is one of the 18 mining and metal companies belonging to ICMM. According to the ICMM website, organization members all agree to subscribe to the principles of sustainable development and respect for the environment.
Here is a link to "Good Practice Guide: Indigenous Peoples and Mining."
