African Energy Metals has a responsibility to operate in a manner that ensures the continuing health and safety of its employees and community members. In addition, our operating methods are designed to exceed ESG standards relating to all environmental, social and governance obligations.
Work in mineral exploration and development is inherently risky unless proper procedures are put in place and adopted on a day-to-day basis. We work continually to improve our safety record by ensuring the importance of following safety best practices is communicated to and understood by all of our employees, contractors, consultants, and suppliers. We require anyone working in or for our operations to acknowledge their understanding of our policies and practices through a formal sign-off procedure. We audit our employees and contractors to ensure that all field operations meet our health and safety procedures and policies.
Specifically, we seek to control and limit safety hazards and minimize worker injury.

1. Designing and executing safety training programs so that our health and safety
practices are adopted by all employees and contractors.
2. Continually monitoring our operations to identify deficiencies and use these to
improve our practices for the future.
3. Staying abreast of industry best practices to ensure that we learn from
