sharing in governance of extractive industries
Boréalis today announced a second partnership in West Africa, this time with Burkinabe firm Teng Tuuma Geoservices (TTG). This partnership is happening a few months after the reform of the mining code and will contribute to the development and promotion of good practices for the mining industry in Burkina Faso; an industry that boomed over the last decade with the opening of 8 industrial gold mines and multiplication of small-scale production thanks to the rise in gold prices.
Teng Tuuma Geoservices’ mission is to offer mining companies quality geology, geochemistry and geophysics services, in addition to training for mining professionals on mastering and using modern methods and technologies to accelerate production of mining resources in Burkina Faso and West Africa. The firm believes that access to such guidance will allow the various actors to contribute to the social and economic development of the area, more specifically among local communities. It’s actually for this reason that TTG offers trainings not only for technical aspects, but also social and mining governance like health, safety, environment, and Corporate Social Responsibility including social acceptance and social license to operate.
