Adoption of E3 plus
The Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada (PDAC), established a framework for responsible exploration called E3 Plus. The E3 Plus serves as a framework for exploration companies to continue their activities while improving their environmental, social and health and safety performance as well integrating these three aspects in all their exploration work. Khalkos adopted the eight principles of E3 Plus and asks its consultants and suppliers to also respect them. Here are the main principles that apply to the company:
Apply ethical business practices: Khalkos continues to abide by management procedures that promote honesty, integrity, transparency and accountability.
Engage host communities and other affected and interested parties: During exploration activities, Khalkos makes sure to interact with local and native communities, notably trappers, organizations, groups and individuals on the basis of respect, inclusion and meaningful participation.
Protect the environment: Khalkos conducts its exploration activities in ways that create minimal disturbance to the environment and applies, in all of its operations, the principals of sustainable development.
