Are mining companies in sync with the complexities and evolving dynamics of mining communities, or is there a lack of understanding and appreciation, on how the communities have evolved over time.

Traditionally Mining communities have been marginalised and treated as labour reserve for the sector, however in recent years these communities have developed into structured permanent communities. While most mining companies have, attempted to adopt and embrace philanthropic initiatives – through the establishment of Corporate Social Investments units with their organisations, there is a lack of appreciation of the CSI, because companies have a uniform/blanket approach to CSI. When one browses through most companies’ websites, there is a sense that CSI is treated as one of the boxes that need to be ticked. The section is only filled with pictures of one or two outreach or donations made by the company to a community, diluting the companies initiative to a mere marketing gimmick. There is a sense that most mining companies seem to be directing or committing fewer human resources to units that deal with CSI.

The CSI landscape has drastically changed over the past years, from philanthropic initiatives to a more impact-based approach, with more companies tracking the effectiveness of their CSI work. However, Mining companies are missing the opportunity to champion and create sustainable community projects, especially since service delivery is poor in the areas which they operate. The Chamber of Mines SA has admitted that there is room for improvement on tangible & sustainable community development initiatives. “We agree that the results-based approach is an important aspiration. It would be premature to assert that this goal has been fully achieved,” said the Chamber.

Mining companies cannot implement CSI alone or in isolation, a more broader approach and conversation is required between all stakeholders, for example if a mining company builds a school or clinic, government needs to support such an initiative with ensuring that the human resource and other requirements are provided. On the other hand, community engagement plays an important role in ensuring that the CSI gets a buy in and support from the community and they are made to understand their role as the custodians of those projects. Because in most cases when communities are not involved in such discussions, there is a high risk that during protests they might vandalise such projects and not protect them, since there is no sense of ownership.

There is no doubt that much has been done by mining companies in mining communities, however a broader stakeholder engagement drive is needed to understand and articulate all stakeholder’s voices.

  3. Segundo seus fundadores, o seu diferencial em relação a outras entidades do ramo foi criar um sistema a fim de controle dos elo job concluídos: “a empresa cadastra os jogadores (termo aplicado para se dizer aos players profissionais que trabalham para a organização). Quando o cliente faz a sua compra, ele atribui a sua posição atual no jogo e a localização que deseja atingir. O aplicativo automaticamente faz um soma em cima dessas informações e já indica o preço que o freguês deve pagar. Quando o comprador realiza o pagamento. Então o aplicativo libera o seu pedido para os boosters (esportistas), que acesso as informações do comprador. Ao conseguir a posição desejada, ele ganha uma % em cima da venda, que pode variar de acordo com cada trabalho.

  4. A palavra elojob ou elo boost lol é colocado para se mencionar cada vez que alguém paga a fim de outra alguém treinar através da área do cliente online e na hora que chegar a sua localização em um jogo. Este tipo de trabalho costuma ser executado pelos mais bons gamers, que trocam um não muito de seu tempo e de suas habilidades online por dinheiro na vida real.

  5. I like what you guys tend to be up too. This kind of
    clever work and exposure! Keep up the great works guys I’ve included
    you guys to my personal blogroll.

  6. Hmm is anyone else having problems with the pictures on this blog loading?

    Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

  7. Hey there! I’ve been reading your blog for a while now and finally got the bravery
    to go ahead and give you a shout out from Humble Tx!
    Just wanted to say keep up the fantastic job!

  8. Do you mind if I quote a couple of your posts as long as I provide credit and sources back to your blog?
    My blog site is in the exact same area of interest as yours and my users would certainly benefit from
    some of the information you present here. Please let me
    know if this alright with you. Appreciate it!

  9. This is a great tip especially to those new to the blogosphere.
    Simple but very precise info… Thanks for sharing this one.
    A must read post!

  10. Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iPad and
    tested to see if it can survive a 30 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple
    ipad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!

  11. Ahaa, its pleasant conversation on the topic of
    this paragraph at this place at this website, I have read all that,
    so now me also commenting at this place.

  12. I always spent my half an hour to read this blog’s posts everyday along with a
    cup of coffee.

  13. Why users still use to read news papers when in this technological world everything is accessible
    on net?

  14. I’m really loving the theme/design of your site.
    Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility problems?
    A few of my blog audience have complained about my website not working correctly in Explorer but looks
    great in Chrome. Do you have any ideas to help fix this issue?

  15. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any
    widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet
    my newest twitter updates. I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this
    for quite some time and was hoping maybe you
    would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything.

    I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward
    to your new updates.

  16. I don’t even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post was
    great. I do not know who you are but certainly you are going to a famous blogger if you are not already 😉 Cheers!

  17. I’ll right away seize your rss feed as I can not in finding your email subscription hyperlink or e-newsletter service.
    Do you have any? Please permit me know in order that
    I may just subscribe. Thanks.

  18. Genuinely when someone doesn’t know afterward its up to other people that they will help, so here it takes place.

  19.  I’ve been experimenting with this technique on my own blog, and trying to make the questions open enough so that people don’t feel like they have to answer them in order to comment. We’ll see how it goes…
     It’s always that way with us. We post, batten down the hatches and get ready… and nothing. Another day, we think, “Good post, but kinda boring,” and BOOM! Comments.

  20. Blogging is a lifestyle, bro  You embrace it and breathe it, or you sorta-kinda-halfway try.
    I agree – the comment section is highly, highly undervalued these days, with everyone out to write great posts. Some of the best points come up in conversation, not in the posts themselves

  21. Too, how people word their comments can shut the discussion down tighter than a ship battening its hatches. It’s generally a place where people make statements, and statements don’t encourage more conversation. 
    It’s another good place to ask questions and be interested to keep the conversation going. I do believe the blogger is responsible for stimulating ongoing conversation. That’s what people want, after all – a little more interaction and personal attention, no?

  22. Can anyone pick up on one pattern of commenting that I’ve used throughout the thread that helps discussion flow and continue?
    I had been meaning to discuss this on my own blog but it fits in so well with the roll everyone’s on here. Listening to NPR last week, I heard author Mark Bittman discussing comments he gets back from his newspaper column on cooking.

  23. It’s going to be end of mine day, except before finish I am
    reading this enormous piece of writing to increase my know-how.
