The report benefited from the valued input of the members of the ASM Working Group of LBMA, which comprised of leading ASM practitioners and GDL refiners. The members provided generous and constructive feedback on the first draft of the report. LBMA would like to thank them for their insights, as well as our industry partners – most especially from within the Responsible Minerals Initiative (RMI) and World Gold Council (WGC) – who shared their experiences and lessons learned from their engagements with the ASM sector. Finally, we would like thank the independent report authors, Gregory Mthembu-Salter and Dr Tom Salter, for the thought and dedication they brought to this project, through research and interviews.
