Craft Origins

With funding from the European Alliance for Responsible Minerals (EPRM), the Alliance for Responsible Mining (ARM) y RESOLVE developed the Code for Risk Mitigation in Artisanal and Small-scale Mining, Forming Transparent and Legal Chains (CRAFT).

This way was developed the Code for the mitigation of Risks associated to artisanal and small-scale mining, forming transparent and legal chains (CRAFT), Passport to formal markets.

This is a code that facilitates the connection between the gold industry and the ASM sector, as it is a detailed tool that allows the application of the OECD Due Diligence Guidance and in turn, allows the establishment of a progressive path towards improvement of the practices of the sector.

CRAFT incorporates the OECD Due Diligence Guidance as a starting point, but is not limited to it, as it considers more aspects in order to improve ASM conditions.

What does transparency mean?
