Endomines has a drive to grow, but at the same time we want to contribute to making the mining industry operate more responsibly. This is why we believe strongly in research and development: possibilities to make interesting findings, to conduct exploration more efficiently, and to find ways to make mining as sustainable as possible.

For us, sustainable operations mean active co-operation with our local stakeholders. When making plans to invest in an existing mine or in building a new mine, it’s important to us to consult with our neighbors. We also appreciate hearing from those who are affected by our work in cases where some aspect needs to be addressed more carefully by us.

The LTI rate (lost-time injuries per one million working hours) at the end of 2017 was 16, which shows a significant increase over the previous years LTI rate of 8. This is partly due to the relatively small number of working hours at the Pampalo site, which makes the LTI frequency very sensitive to each incidence. In 2017, the number of lost-time injuries was two, causing altogether four sick leave days.
