Making a Positive Impact
Trigon Metals believes in operating responsibly. In Namibia, mining, including the extraction of gem diamonds, uranium, gold, silver, and base metals, is the cornerstone of the economy.
The mine has a key role in restoring the livelihood of the Kombat residents and the government is working towards developing a friendly and conducive environment for economic activities.
Trigon seeks to advance the ideals of corporate responsibility in Namibia through the following initiatives:
10% of our shares are held by the Epangelo State Company. Epangelo is a private company held by the Government of the Republic of Namibia which aims to include Namibian citizens in all stages of the mining process, whilst developing and consolidating a portfolio of high-quality assets and services for the benefit of its stakeholders.
Trigon Metals believes in operating responsibly, that’s why the company sponsored the two-hectare vegetable garden and fish farm and maintains it in collaboration with the local community at Kombat. The garden produces a range of crops, most of which are distributed to residents of Kombat Village and nearby Neu Sommerau.
Mining has been a key sector for the development of the African continent, and engaging local youth contributes to a more prosperous future. Trigon hosts an annual visit to the Kombat Mine for grade 9 students, to promote the pursuit of careers in mining.
