The Environment

Lucara recognizes that its operations can have significant environmental impacts on local communities throughout the life cycle of our mining operations. Some of these impacts include land use changes, environmental degradation, and population influx, offset by increased economic opportunities and development in the areas of infrastructure, health, education, and micro-enterprise. As a result, we operate under Equator Principles and the guidance of local authorities throughout the life of a mine. This includes use of baseline assessment tools and conducting environmental impact assessments; evaluating how to avoid, mitigate or control potentially significant impacts; implementing appropriate monitoring and management systems; and addressing the need for mine closure.
