Resettlement

Sometimes the construction or expansion of a mine or its infrastructure means that local communities need to be resettled. Resettlement is one of the most sensitive challenges a mining company can face, and if not well managed can harm local livelihoods, lead to fines from government and ultimately damage relationships with the host community.
