To address development opportunities identified by the community, Nevsun developed a Community Assistance Plan (CAP) for the Bisha Mine. The CAP’s contributions go beyond direct mining activities and enhance the social and economic well-being of the host communities in which we operate. In 2016, Bisha Mining working alongside several stakeholder communities to complete, or almost complete, three sustainable agricultural irrigation and infrastructure projects designed to provide potable water sources closer to residents’ homes and enhance local farming yields. One of these projects was completed in July 2016, while the remaining two will be completed in early 2017. In addition, several new community projects are scheduled to commence in 2017. More information on the 2016 CAP projects can be found on page 60.
