SUSTAINABLE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT THROUGH MINING INNOVATION

Barksanem™ in Burkina Faso is a sustainable artisanal and semi-industrial mining company which, in addition to its own mining operations deploys the Barksanem™License through its sister company in USA. This License optimizes the physical supply chains through innovative technologies to track precious minerals, while participating in the economic and environmental development of micro-communities. Our monetization policy transforms mineral production into a Monetization Support System empowering local collectivities.

BSM™ SYSTEMS

Barksanem™’s model available in the Barksanem™ License consists of several interconnected systems:

  • The “Territorial Approach” system
  • The “Prospection” system
  • The “Organization of Living Facilities” system
  • The “Extraction and Ore Processing” system
  • The “Commercialization” system
  • The “Security and Tracking” system
  • The “Export” system
  • The “Global Health Solution” system

RESPONSIBLE SOURCING THROUGH RESPONSIBLE TRACKING

BSM™’s Territorial Approach integrates artisanal gold mining, which is often present on mining sites long before they are allocated to companies. Identifying and registering these artisanal gold miners and their families facilitate the support of artisanal gold miners, while fighting against recurrent fraud specific to the mining sector, enabling “Fair Mining” certification for artisanal gold mining.

MINES: IDENTIFIED, LOCATED, ORGANIZED

BSM™ identifies and locates its mining sites based on its territorial approach and organizes them with its mapping system.

MINERS: IDENTIFIED, REGISTERED, ASSISTED

BSM™ integrates artisanal gold miners currently working on their sites, identifies them and their families and digitally records them in order to better accompany them.

MINERALS: TRACKED, CONTROLLED, COMMERCIALIZED

BSM™ uses its tracking system to control minerals from extraction until they are sold.

ECONOMIC TRADE

  • Creation of a Monetization Support System based on gold
  • Boosting the barter system within the community
  • BSM™ training and certification
  • Creating an individual virtual wallet

SOCIOECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT

Ultimately, while creating a profitable semi-industrial mining company, the BSM™ License, through mining operations, contributes to generating virtuous economic, social and environmental dynamics for micro-collectivities.
