An expert report commissioned by Above Ground confirms that locals near the Morro do Ouro mine are exposed to dangerous concentrations of environmental arsenic.
With this submission to the Business and Human Rights Resource Centre, Above Ground and Justiça Global welcome the opportunity to address points raised by Kinross Gold and Export Development Canada in response to our report "Swept Aside: An Investigation into Human Rights Abuse at Kinross Gold's Morro do Ouro Mine."
Above Ground and other members of the Canadian Network on Corporate Accountability provided the UN working group on business and human rights with input during its 2017 country visit to Canada. This submission provides the working group with complementary and updated information in anticipation of the release of its Canada visit report.
