We believe that effective security controls, standards, policies and procedures contribute to the safety and protection of our employees and the communities in which we operate.
Operating in some areas of Tanzania requires ABG, as well as the Tanzanian Government and the local communities, to deal with law and order issues. A number of these issues have been related to specific events such as instability in areas at the time of elections, while others are longer term challenges such as trespass and vandalism by intruders seeking to unlawfully take gold and other property from our operations. These challenges vary depending on the location of the operation and other circumstances. ABG has implemented, and continues to identify, alternatives to manage these security issues in a manner that places at its heart the safety and security of people, property and assets.
