In February 2016, Newmont commissioned RESOLVE to convene an Expert Advisory Panel to consider matters relating to Free Prior and Informed Consent (FPIC) within a human rights framework at the Merian mine in Suriname. The report’s primary purpose is to serve as a resource for companies interested in operationalising FPIC. The report describes the Panel and its process, outlines the mine’s approach to community engagement, presents observations on the operationalisation of FPIC elements at Merian and provides recommendations for Newmont and the industry.
