Mission & Values
At Alio Gold, our mission is to become Mexico’s next mid-tier gold producer and to create value for all our stakeholders while operating in a safe and responsible manner. We continue to focus on the optimization of our San Francisco operation, bringing our Ana Paula project to a production decision and advancing our pipeline of exploration properties.
We believe that safety, environmental stewardship and social responsibility are the cornerstones of a sustainable mining industry. Our goal is to promote the health and well-being of our employees and local communities and to send every employee home safe every day. We strive to maximize long-term benefits to the communities in which we operate, such that our presence will be a positive influence long after our operations have ended. Ultimately, our success will be measured on a balance of profitability, growth and the positive influence we have made on our social and environmental commitments.
We are especially proud of the recognition we received in 2016 for our determination in meeting our social obligations. Alio Gold was awarded for the fifth time with the Company emblem “Socially Responsible” (ESR®), which is granted by the Mexican Centre of the Philanthropy (CEMEFI) and the Alliance for Managerial Social Responsibility in Mexico. This recognition is awarded on an annual basis and recognizes companies that are leaders in setting social responsibility standards. In 2016, Alio Gold also received the “Mexico Without Child Labour” award granted by the Ministry of Labour (STPS) for demonstrating the implementation of policies to prevent and eradicate child labour. In addition, Alio Gold received a renewal of our “Family Responsible Company” distinction, which is granted every two years by the Ministry of Labour.
