TORONTO, ONTARIO (February 7, 2024) – LAURION Mineral Exploration Inc. (TSX.V: LME
and OTC: LMEFF) (“LAURION” or the “Corporation”) is pleased to announce that it has published its Environmental, Social and Governance (“ESG”) report for 2023.
LAURION’s chief priority remains maximizing shareholder value while simultaneously embracing and considering the principles and best practices of ESG issues. A large portion of the Corporation’s focus in this regard falls within the ambit of its mineral exploration activities and more specifically, advancing its flagship Ishkoday Project.
The Corporation is of the view that it is becoming increasingly important for junior exploration companies – especially those that are publicly traded – to clearly document and report all critical activities to ensure that all stakeholders and communities are informed on these key ESG metrics.
LAURION acknowledges that the success of its operations is built upon a solid foundation of sustainability. Its ESG pillars reflect the Corporation’s commitment to honest and ethical conduct with our local community and Aboriginal Groups, monitoring and mitigating environmental impacts, and providing a safe, supportive workplace environment for employees.
LAURION endeavours to operate with the highest standards at the forefront of its activities. It places a high value on actionable efforts versus just words, and has implemented or contributed to a number of notable initiatives.
LAURION’s sustainability strategy recognizes that it conducts business in an evolving, increasingly complex, global landscape and its ability to achieve sustainable outcomes is intertwined with people, politics, our planet and the economy.
LAURION believes that striking the right balance among environmental, economic and social considerations within the context and stage of the Corporation’s exploration activities creates long-term value and resilience. LAURION approaches these environmental responsibilities meaningfully, proactively and with due care.
The Corporation is very pleased to have partnered with ONYEN Corporation, a global technology company focused on ESG reporting that will help LAURION benchmark its journey of continuous improvement.
