Fairmined Standard for Gold and Associated Precious Metals

The Alliance for Responsible Mining (ARM) staff and volunteers, in broad collaboration with global stakeholders, have developed the Fairmined Standard for Gold and Associated Precious Metals to support sustainable development of Artisanal and Small-scale Mining (ASM) communities. The standard includes requirements for Artisanal and Small-scale Mining Organizations (ASMOs) to perform responsible artisanal and small-scale mining: formal and legal mining operations, environmental protection, ethical labor conditions, traceability of Fairmined minerals and socio-economic development through paying certified mining communities a Fairmined Premium for their precious metals.
