The Guide stems from a commitment by ICMM's members to ensure the responsible extraction/production of minerals and metals. At its heart is a commitment to establishing positive engagements and relationships with indigenous peoples. The aim of this document is to provide information and practical direction to staff and employees of responsible mining companies, to guide appropriate and respectful engagement with Indigenous Peoples. As such, it intends to stimulate discussion and promote cross-cultural understanding between indigenous communities and mining companies. With that, it the guide refelects the vision embodied in ICMM's Position Statement for constructive relationships between indigenous oeoples and the mining and metals industry which are based on respect, meaningful engagement and mutual benefit and which have particular regard for the specific and historical situation of Indigenous Peoples.
