COMMUNITY RELATIONS & LAND ACCESS AGREEMENTS
With well over one hundred successful land access and community agreements with Campesinos, Ejidos, Indigenous, Garimpieros, Small Land Holders, and Artisanal Miner communities in Mexico, Nicaragua, Venezuela, Suriname, Guyana, Brazil and Peru we have a well established history of completing and managing lasting agreements, quickly and without conflict.
We focus on early stage negotiations, where land access, permitting agreements, stakeholder buy in, and community development projects are key drivers. For advanced projects that are seeking exploitation or production agreements, we refer the file to others who will complete the advanced social economic impact assessments.
