Mining and Indigenous Peoples Issues Review

Prepared for the International Council on Mining and Metals

Successful mining and metals operations require the support of the communities in which they operate now, and in the future, to ensure continued access to land and resources. Relationships between mining and metals operations and their local communities, including Indigenous communities, should be founded on respect, meaningful engagement and mutual benefit. Often these relationships are complex. This is particularly the case in relationships with Indigenous communities, which have characteristics that set them apart from the wider community, such as distinct systems of decision-making, social and political institutions, and wealth generation and distribution mechanisms. In addition, their cultures are often closely associated with natural resources.

The review’s main objectives are to facilitate more meaningful industry engagement in these areas and improve management of the relationships. The review process included a survey of a diverse range of industry representatives, many of whom were from ICMM member organisations.
