The strategy is to acquire projects where early risk has been mitigated and major potential exists for value-add. All of our projects satisfy these strategic criteria and subject to financing and other constraints, the Company will continue to opportunistically grow and develop the Company.

Galileo Resources Plc is dedicated to sustainable and socially responsible development and, as a company, ensures its projects adhere to the highest environmental standards. The company is also a firm proponent for the role of foreign direct investment as a key form of social development in developing African countries.
Mining is a fine balance between commercial viability and environmental sustainability, and Galileo Resources is committed to operating in a manner that will ensure the longevity of both the operations and the areas and communities surrounding its operations.
Health & Safety
Galileo Resources is committed to upholding the highest levels of safety and occupational health standards across all its operations. The Company’s aim is not only to meet relevant legislative requirements, but also to achieve best practice standards both nationally and internationally with regard to safety and health.
Providing a safe and healthy workplace is a key priority for Galileo Resources, and particular emphasis is placed on trying to eliminate all workplace injuries and work-related ill health effects.
Key environmental legislation regulates the mining industry in South Africa and Galileo Resources aims to maintain a comprehensive environmental management plan for all its projects and future operations. These plans address the risks associated with mining and the subsequent closure and rehabilitation of the property.
Galileo Resources endeavours to manage and mitigate the impact on affected natural ecosystems, contribute towards bio diversity conservation, ensure effective and appropriate land rehabilitation, and ensure that comprehensive disaster management plans are in place. Work in this regard is ongoing and Galileo Resources aims to continue to improve its waste minimisation measures, its energy efficiency, and its air, land and water management systems.
Galileo Resources appreciates the importance of community consultation and facilitates the involvement and awareness of relevant communities and their representatives when undertaking any exploration or development activity.
