PX Impact

Introduction

The PX IMPACT ® initiative, a forefront and impact oriented approach “business for business”…

gold from Artisanal scale producers, guaranteed mercury-free extraction

volumes meeting industrial requirements

comprehensive traceability, from mine to products

PX IMPACT® premiums, the most attractive on the market, and fully invested in PX IMPACT® projects

PX IMPACT® FUND

A premium is taken from each kilo sold, to aid the PX IMPACT® fund. The amount varies, according to the annual quantities purchased, between 220 and 500 USD per kilo. 100 % of this premium is paid back into the fund, and reinvested locally in the mining communities.

The PX IMPACT® fund makes it possible to conduct health, educational, technical, economic or environmental projects in the mining communities with which Dynacor works. The robust and extensive procurement network makes it possible to identify the requirements of the mining communities and suggest projects to the not-for-profit organisation PX IMPACT®, which selects and manages them.

ARTISANAL MINERS

Nearly 400 ore producers, all registered and recognised by the Peruvian Government, supply the factory of our partner Dynacor in Chala, Peru, so that Dynacor extracts the gold to guarantee zero mercury content.

All artisanal ore producers must meet certain eligibility criteria to supply their ore to Dynacor. Thanks to the excellent recovery rate of the processing plant and Dynacor’s solid reputation on the ore market, the miners are encouraged to stop processing their ores themselves using mercury. This substance has disastrous consequences for humans and the environment, which can no longer be tolerated.

DYNACOR GOLD INC.

Dynacor Gold Inc. has proven itself an outstanding partner in the field for PX PRECINOX. There is a shared desire to improve working conditions and the efficiency of the ore producers, and a long-term approach is to be set up, with an initiative developed by the market players, for market players.

Dynacor is a gold and silver ore processing and mining company present in Peru through its subsidiaries since 1996. It conducts all of its activities in accordance with the most stringent ethical, environmental and social standards, to meet or even surpass Peruvian and international standards, based on four pillars: respect for the environment, complying with health and safety requirements, encouraging corporate social responsibility and setting up community development projects.
