WHO WE ARE
We are an Australian ASX listed company focused on exploration and development of minerals to support a low carbon future. Our team has a track record of success through focusing on collaboration, quality exploration and development.
To discover and develop the minerals needed for a sustainable low carbon future.
Stavely Minerals is committed to minimising the impact on land and fully rehabilitating farmland and the environment immediately following its mineral exploration activities.
Prior to drilling of an exploration site, a photographic record is taken and any significant vegetation is identified and fenced off.
All reasonable measures are taken to minimise the impact of the drilling operation on the environment.
On completion, the drill site is fully rehabilitated to as good as, if not better, than its previous state. Our rehabilitation process involves:
– Cut any protruding drill collars to 40cm below ground level and plug the hole;
– Backfill hole and mound with surplus material to allow for settling;
– Restore original land contours of drill site;
– Remove all foreign material and samples and dispose of in an approved waste facility;
– Shallow rip of the site and associated access tracks (if required) to overcome soil compaction; and
– Apply seed to achieve desired rehabilitation outcome (eg. pasture, crop, native seed) if required.
Stavely works closely with the local communities when undertaking activities.
SOCIAL & COMMUNITY
Stavely Minerals Limited recognises that responsible community engagement is a key part of its exploration activities, and fundamental to its future as a successful exploration and mineral development company.
We have a commitment to the communities in which we operate, and consider that sound community engagement practices provide benefits for all stakeholders, including local residents, landowners, shareholders, employees, contractors and the broader community.
We are committed to regular, open and honest communication with the community so locals are aware of our exploration activities through appropriate disclosure of information, to consult with them to obtain feedback, and to provide a mechanism for resolving any concerns or complaints they might have.
We recognise that all stakeholders with whom we engage should be treated with respect and fairness, and we seek to protect the environment and enrich the communities in which we work. Community engagement works best where it is an ongoing cumulative process enabling relationships and trust to build and strengthen over time and is essential for a viable future.
DELOITTE ECONOMIC IMPACT STUDY
We are proud of our strong governance within our Company, and we believe that this is reflected in the reputation of our Board and management.
Our Board agenda always includes risk. We have implemented a detailed Risk Register that identifies key risks for Stavely, including social, environmental and financial risks. Each risk is assigned to specific manager and the risk is assessed for potential causes, impacts and current controls. The control effectiveness is determined, and each risk is given a rating. Further controls that may be required are recorded with expected dates for implementation.
Further details of our governance is included in our annual Corporate Governance Statement, and our Corporate Governance section of the website.
The health, safety and well-being of our people is essential to the success of Stavely and our community. Inductions, training and being familiar with our Company policies form the basis of safety on site. The well-being of our people is of the utmost importance, and as a result we provide first aid courses that include mental health.
As technology in the mining industry continues to increase, it is essential that our people are given the opportunity to continue their professional development. Stavely brings experts to site to not only provide technical consulting for our operations, but to also develop the technical skills of our people. We provide opportunities for external training and technical conferences.
Where possible, Stavely employs its people from the local community. We are proud of the gender diversity that we have on site with 50% of employees being women, which we aim to increase where possible.
