Corporate Social Responsibility
It is the policy of Golden Reef Mining to fully cooperate with any appropriate governmental or regulatory investigation. A condition of such cooperation, however, is that the Company be adequately represented in such investigations by its own senior management and or legal counsel.
Employees, officers and directors are required to comply with the timely disclosure of material information and provide full, fair, accurate understandable and timely disclosure in reports and documents filed with, or submitted to, regulatory authorities and other materials that are made available to the investing public.
Golden Reef Mining aims to build stronger and healthier relationships with local communities through education, direct support of local communities, charitable donations and support of non-profit agencies in the communities in which we operate.
The main aim of the Company’s environmental policy is to comply with all applicable environmental legislation in all jurisdictions in which we operate and to adopt responsible environmental practices.
At Ruia mine, the company uses weak cyanide solution for gold extraction. The effect of cyanide on the environment can be harmful unless with a comprehensive environmental management plan. The Company has such a plan and commonly exceeds government requirements.
We value the knowledge of the local people and seek opportunities to build strong long-term relationships with the people in the communities where we explore and where we will operate our mines and processing plant in the future

Sanitizers and Dish Wash Donations
As part of our corporate social responsibility, we as Golden Reef Mining donated 125l of toilet sanitizers and dish wash to Tsakare clinic for its upkeep. This was well appreciated since the general hygiene of the clinic was very low due to unavailability of funds.
Golden Reef Mining also donated a 5000l tank for the clinic to make sure locals have safe and plenty of drinking/utility water when they visit the clinic.
Water tank donation
Periodically, Golden Reef Mining repairs the 15km road which links the mine and Mt Darwin township. It is the same road used by local communities as well when doing their day to day business in the nearby town.
The village close to the mine plant is known as Tangenhamo. As part of our corporate social responsibility, we donated a 33kv transformer to the village so that they can have electricity thereby reducing the stress placed on the environment by fire wood cutting.
