Social Management Evaluation
Bonikro Project, Côte d’Ivoire
In 2009 SCG carried out an evaluation of LGL Gold’s social management strategies. LGL Gold was one of the world’s leading companies in gold production. The service was carried out in the area of influence of both the Bonikro Project and neighboring exploration projects being developed by the company as part of its plans for expansion.
Recognizing the importance of the social context for the expansion and consolidation of their operations in the near future, LGL Gold hired SCG to evaluate their social management activities and propose further measures adapted to international standards.
SCG’s work included discussing and evaluating local interest groups’ expectations, social investment, informal mining, land use, the resettlement of local populations and informal mining. Work on these issues was adapted to the context of the country.
