As part of MRM’s ongoing commitment to environmental preservation, it will plant 3,000 trees in Namanhumbir by December 2021.
MRM commenced the tree planting campaign in April 2021 and unveiled it on Saturday 5 June to coincide with World Environment Day, which aims to raise global awareness of the need to protect and conserve the environment.
MRM’s General Manager, Prahalad Kumar Singh led Saturday’s event symbolically planting a seedling in the garden at the Primary School of Nseue, in Namanhumbir.
Since starting operations MRM has been raising awareness of the benefits of environmental conservation amongst its local communities as well supporting the efforts of conservation partners in its host nation.
This focus on the environment is also reflected in MRM’s mining process, in which the team rehabilitates the areas they are no longer mining, back-filling them with soil and replanting, and MRM also recycles water and uses zero chemicals in the mining process.
