Scoping Study on Developing Pilot Supply Chains

Responsible Gold Sourcing

17.05.2017 |

Gold refiners have different options when seeking to source gold from artisanal and small-scale mining (ASM) in a responsible way. This report examines the responsible gold sourcing framework defined through applicable regulatory instruments as well as relevant industry and sustainability standards in gold supply chains. It then proceeds to analyzing questions of operational gold supply chain management. Further, the report explores incentives for possible supply chain participants, in particular ASM operators, to engage in legal supply chains. Finally, the study evaluates the parameters for establishing legal ASM supply chains in selected gold-producing developing countries.
