Miners who comply with the Fairtrade Standard receive a premium of $2000USD per kilo on top of the guaranteed minimum price for their gold.

Some Facts

There are 15 million artisanal and small scale gold miners in the world (ASM), with a further 100 million people who are dependent on ASM.
Small-scale miners extract between 10-15% of the global gold supply chain, yet make up over 90% of the labour force in gold mining.

Our Miners

Fairtrade is proud to be working with artisanal and small-scale mining organisations (ASMOs) in Latin America and East Africa to meet Fairtrade standards and supply international markets with certified gold and precious metals.

There are currently two Fairtrade certified mining organisations, AURELSA and SOTRAMI, both in Peru.  In addition Fairtrade is working with nine pilot groups in Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania to achieve Fairtrade certification, in a three-year programme funded by Comic Relief.
