Marathon Gold Corporation is dedicated to working closely with the communities and people of central Newfoundland to acquire regulatory approvals and develop the Valentine Gold Project in an environmentally and socially responsible manner. While industrial activity often brings much needed economic growth and opportunity to communities and regions, it is important that stakeholders and Indigenous groups that may be affected by the activities understand the potential impacts and have confidence their concerns have been taken into consideration in project planning and execution. Engagement with people who may have an interest in, or be affected by, the project is key to operating within a sustainable development framework.

Marathon Gold recognizes that the establishment of strong, long-term relationships and investments in people and communities is a critical component of the sustainable exploration and development of Newfoundland and Labrador’s rich resource potential. Guided by its corporate values of respect, accountability, transparency, inclusion, and prosperity, Marathon is committed to continual and meaningful engagement with those communities, Indigenous groups, associations, individuals and regulators who have interest in or may be affected by the Valentine Gold Project. Meaningful engagement is based upon the timely provision of relevant information and ongoing dialogue and interaction with stakeholders and Indigenous groups to ensure that issues and concerns are understood and taken into consideration in Project planning and execution.

Consistent with its Community Relations Policy, Marathon Gold aims to establish positive and constructive relationships with all its stakeholders and with both Miawpukek First Nation and Qalipu Mi’kmaq First Nation throughout the environmental assessment and permitting processes and over the life of the project.

An important part of meaningful engagement consists in investing in communities through the support of local and regional initiatives.  As part of its commitment to building positive relationships with people and communities, Marathon has sponsored a wide range of activities, including recreational and cultural events, and has contributed to the support of organizations such as local fire departments, volunteer groups and industry associations.
