Respecting the People and the Land
Social & Environmental Responsibility
Sego Resources operates with full respect for the Land and the People. As the first step to acquiring the Miner Mountain project and prior to any work in the area, Sego met with the Upper Similkameen Indian Band and worked out a comprehensive Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to create an ongoing partnership in the development of the project.
Sego’s board of directors and management team are dedicated to open and on-going dialogue with all members of the community. Sego frequently consults directly with land owners in the area, and with community members through meetings and the local newspapers, thereby ensuring everyone is kept abreast of progress on the project and how exploration might affect the community.
As the company entered talks with the Upper Similkameen Indian Band, Sego made every effort to reach out to locally-affected cattle ranchers to ensure they were informed about the project.
Sego initiated rehabilitation of ranch land that was left disturbed by previous operators. Sego filled in trenches and reseeded large areas of the claims to return the land to productive pasture. Sego and the Upper Similkameen Indian Band, who were partners in the work, were recognized by the provincial government with an Award for Reclamation Achievement.
By taking these important steps, Sego created open dialogue with all members of the community, and certainty for shareholders, thereby helping to avoid potential conflicts in the future that might distract from the end goal of developing the Miner Mountain project to its fullest potential.
