Over the years, SRK Consulting has maintained consistency in rapport with our mission: to contribute to a responsible industry. Rather than pursuing a growth figure, we have aimed to foster technical excellence, to act with integrity and to be independent. Sustainability underpins our approach, whether this relates to responsible reporting or developing codes and regulations for responsible mining. In this sense, we have fostered long-standing collaborations with organizations and committees such as the SAIMM, SAMVAL, SAMREC and IMVAL. Moving forward, we are applying and cultivating the same principles.
