  • 28. Page 28 Bandanna’s Coexistence Policy includes … Vision The complementary conduct of mining and agricultural activities in a mutually beneficial and sustainable framework. Objectives To mine natural resources in a way that provides an economic return for shareholders while maintaining and improving agricultural productivity on operating farming properties that are directly impacted by our mining projects. How we define coexistence Coexistence is defined as: Working together with the agricultural community to ensure agriculture and mining can occur concurrently in an economically sustainable manner. Commitments include •Establishing and funding mine projects including specific agricultural plans •Involving landholders and other land use stakeholders in the development and implementation of the project specific agricultural plans •Complying with the regulatory operating conditions as they relate to productivity.
