Behind Sustainable Mining

In May 2022, I embarked on a transformative journey organized by Fairmined, joining a group of 12 jewelers from across the globe to visit three certified alluvial mines in Peru. This immersive experience provided invaluable insights into the gold mining process post-Fairmined certification and allowed me to witness firsthand the profound impact it has on the mines, their communities, and the environment.

This eye-opening trip left a lasting impression on me, igniting a deep passion for advocating for improved practices in gold mining within my jewelry project. Through the powerful mediums of communication, photography, and art, my mission is to convey the unconventional narrative of true sustainability in gold production. I aim to shed light on the destructive nature of gold mining and its inadequate regulation. It is crucial to support initiatives like Fairmined because, contrary to popular belief, abstaining from supporting newly mined gold does not automatically promote sustainable practices. Gold will always be sourced from somewhere, and therefore advocating for gold traceability becomes essential.

When we discuss sustainability, it is vital to address the social impact as well. Many communities rely on mining for their sustenance. By championing initiatives like Fairmined, I strive to create awareness and promote the holistic understanding that sustainable practices must encompass both environmental considerations and social responsibility. Through my work, I hope to inspire others to join this movement for long-lasting change in the gold mining industry.
