We strive to create social and economic capital through all of our community programs. Investing in the future of our communities is core to our belief that mining can help to enrich lives and build vibrant communities.
To help local farmers market their grape crops, Eldorado helped found the Efemçukuru Agricultural Development Cooperative. Members have since negotiated better prices for their grapes with merchants and organized events to further promote their product.
In response to interest from communities near our Halkidiki assets in Greece, Eldorado organized a trip to Kostantinidis Nursery, a leading plant nursery in Serres, northern Greece.
At all of Eldorado’s operations, our priority is to work with local suppliers wherever possible. At our Efemçukuru mine site in Turkey, five local companies, that employ over 100 people, provide us with their services.
We believe that education can transform lives. At Kisladag and Efemçukuru, we invest in projects that increase and support educational opportunities for local communities.
