Ethics and Sustainability
Micon works transparently with clients, stakeholders and interested parties providing consistent, honest and clear advice on how to raise standards, achieve corporate policy commitments and meet or exceed good practice. We undertake to reduce our company’s environmental footprint on an ongoing basis. It is very important to us to ensure respect for the culture, heritage, beliefs, and participation of local communities in our activities. Respecting and promoting human rights within our business and with our clients is essential to Micon. Micon will never accept or give a bribe, facilitation payment, or other improper payment for any reason.
One of the first tasks that an exploration or mining company should undertake once a deposit has been identified, is to initiate a series of Environmental Baseline Studies (EBS). EBS include analyzing and quantifying the relevant environmental parameters for the area containing the footprint of the future mine as a record of the environmental conditions before any project activities have taken place.
Micon strives to constantly improve and innovate our services to exceed the expectations of our clients. The staff at Micon is committed to providing independent professional advice to mining companies, providers of capital, law firms and government agencies.
