MAC: Mines and Communities

Welcome to Mines and Communities (MAC)

... website, published by a unique network of indigenous and solidarity NGOs, representing many thousands of people directly affected by the mining industry.

 All the world's at C, Part One

MAC was launched in 2001, and its priorities are governed by an editorial board, under our foundation statement, the London Declaration.

We provide communities, NGOs, activists, the media - and the general public - with information about many aspects of global mining and its impacts.

New articles are added regularly - please refer to latest headlines on the right of this page. Click on the thematic buttons (above & on the left) to browse through 20 years-worth of news articles, analyses and opinion pieces. Or use the search engine.

If you feel able to support us, or for any other comments, we'd be delighted to hear from you.

More information on the people and organisations behind the site can be found here.

 We have a section looking at mining and Covid-19.

 And a feed page, which you can follow here.


Who's funding what in mining?

Need to know which banks and institutions are funding which mining companies - and where? From Money to Metals is an indispensable database and analysis, recently updated and available on-line.

And as to who funds us, donations are vital to our work. Please help if you can. Your feedback will be much appreciated.

The London Declaration - 2008

The London Declaration is the founding document of Mines and Communities and encapsulates key demands being made by many communities affected by mining around the world.
