Managing Community Resettlement

Managing Community Resettlement

OVERVIEW

When operations are initiated at a new mine site or when extending an existing mine footprint, mining companies face the numerous and diverse challenges involved with relocating and resettling communities affected by the mining activities.

Community Resettlement involves the compensation of individuals for land and property as well as ensuring that people are successfully relocated off the land. Resettlement may be to company designated areas/houses, to other suitable locations as agreed between the parties involved, or an individual may get offered a settlement payment that would enable them to purchase a new property.
