This Monday April 20th join Fair Trade Vancouver for our presentation and panel discussion on Fair Trade Gold.
The evening will include an excellent lineup of speakers who will introduce artisanal small-scale mining (ASM), discuss its role in the gold supply chain and highlight the latest work to improve production practices.
Small-scale miners work in remote, marginalized and harsh conditions, doing back-breaking work to make a living. Their access to markets is limited and they rarely receive a fair price for their gold.
Fairtrade gold and precious metals is a groundbreaking initiative that offers a lifeline to poor and exploited small-scale miners around the world. It links consumers of jewelry with the source of their purchase.
