Mining Related Human Rights Impact Assessment

Mining projects have the potential to seriously impact on the human rights of those people indirectly or directly affected by a project’s activities. For this reason a dedicated human rights impact assessment (HRIA) is becoming a required and important component of responsible corporate conduct. SRK can complete a HRIA that, where applicable, meets national legislation in the host country and meets international good practice based on the rights enumerated in the United Nations universal declaration of human rights.
