Health & Safety
Amarillo strives to ensure all work areas are safe and is committed to ensuring the safety, health, and welfare of the Company’s employees and their families, its contractors, and the communities in which this work is conducted.
A healthy financial return is essential to the Company’s long term growth and stability. Only by creating wealth for both shareholders, and for the communities in which it works, can Amarillo sustain itself as a successful company, fulfil its environmental obligations, and bring benefits to local communities.
Amarillo actively engages in meaningful dialogue with local community residents and organizations to identify economic, social, development, and training priorities, and contributes significantly toward the development of communities surrounding its operations.
Amarillo’s objectives are to minimize the impact its exploration and operations may cause to the environment and to practice progressive rehabilitation and reclamation of areas impacted by its activities. The primary environmental focus is to develop responsible mining projects where the Company’s employees and contractors proactively consider methods and practices which minimize the environmental footprint. Precautionary measures are always taken to avoid damage to ecosystems.
