Industry Best Practise and Standards



Goldlake Group strives to distinguish itself as an industry leader through conforming with and, in some cases, setting the highest standards and management systems across its business functions and activities.

Goldlake Group is a member of the Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC), which is a standards-setting organization that was established to bolster consumers’ confidence in the jewellery industry by promoting responsible, ethical, human rights, social and environmental practices throughout the jewellery supply chain.

The RJC has developed a comprehensive system of standards (which are available at www.responsiblejewellery.com) applicable to all businesses in the jewellery supply chain, and a credible mechanism for verifying compliance to its standards through third party auditors. We are fully committed to achieving RJC certification of our gold producing and refining operations.

Goldlake has begun the path to achieving ISO14001 certification at its iron ore mine, Five Star Mining, in Agalteca, Honduras. ISO is an internationally recognized independent standard setting body; achieving the ISO 14001 certification is a significant accomplishment demonstrating an operation’s commitment to the establishment of robust environmental management systems that continually improve performance and reduce environmental impacts in and around the concession. Our goal is to achieve ISO 14001 certification at Five Star Mining in 2013.

Goldlake uses contractors to carry out some activities at our sites and facilities, such as transporting raw material or to provide security or environmental services. In all cases where we contract with outside firms, we require that they formally commit to and comply with our standards and acknowledge and respect our core values, including the requirements of third party standard setting bodies, such as the RJC
