Leaving a Legacy
While critics are quick to point out the environmental impacts mining will leave behind, there’s not much talk about the economic and social impacts that will benefit generations to come.
In our feature this month we mention the amount of corporate giving by mining companies last year hitting over a billion dollars. But that’s only the tip of the iceberg.
Every single mine site supports their local communities in numerous ways. While the big donations often get the limelight – though never as much as they deserve – there are so many other contributions that mostly go unnoticed.
Volunteering, partnerships, fundraising, payroll contributions, events, sponsorships and grants. From a crew running a raffle to raise money for a local organisation, to a worker entering a fundraising event to raise money for a charity, whether it takes energy, time or donations, our industry never stops giving back. And yes, we can’t forget all the equipment proudly painted on mine sites to raise awareness.
While most of these are on a small scale, the sheer number of them adds up to something extraordinary. If we shared every story, this magazine would be a thousand pages long.
That’s the legacy mining will leave that we will remember.
