Serengeti Resources Inc. is committed to responsible exploration practices. We understand and embrace the need to create mutually beneficial, positive working relationships with First Nations and local communities built on trust and respect.
We ensure that our planned and proposed exploration activities are brought forward to local communities in a manner that allows for thorough review and input.
We engage early and often, and we are further committed to minimizing any potential environmental, cultural and social impacts of the planned exploration activities.
We collaborate with the local communities and seek to build strong relationships with local First Nations.
We adhere to the principles of e3 Plus “Framework for Responsible Exploration” of the Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada and the “Aboriginal Engagement Principles” outlined by Association for Mineral Exploration British Columbia.
Past activity highlights
Serengeti has signed an Exploration Access Agreement with Takla Lake First Nation for the Kwanika copper-gold project in British Columbia. During periods of active exploration, members of the local community have comprised a significant proportion of our project work force.
As part of the Kwanika agreement, Serengeti has provided financial assistance to the local community school in the form of teaching resources, supplies and equipment.
Serengeti co-sponsored the Actua GeeringUp science camp in the community of Takla Lake in 2013 and has been a repeat sponsor of junior sledge dog races held in the community of Fort St. James each year.
We will consider employment, training opportunities, and other potential benefits and professional opportunities to First Nations communities and their businesses, consistent with the scope of the proposed exploration activities. We will continue conducting our work in a socially respectful and environmentally sound manner.
