Fairmined Gold

We support responsible mining communities.

IT’S GOOD FOR EVERYONE

We’ve made one important exception to our recycled metal focus. Fairmined gold empowers artisanal small-scale miners (ASM), who make up 90% of the global mining workforce, and the families they support through fair-trade pricing. The Fairmined certification ensures that their gold meets social and environmental standards.

THE MINER AS THE AGENT OF CHANGE

We incentivize small-scale certified miners to use responsible mining practices with low environmental impact, safe and reduced handling of chemicals or chemical-free extraction, and protection of water supplies.
