About Fairmined Gold:
Fairmined is a product seal that certifies gold from responsible artisanal & small-scale mining organizations. The objective is to bring about positive change in small-scale artisanal mining, promote sustainable social-economic development and environmental protection and give everyone access to responsibly mined gold.
The special characteristic of Fairmined Ecological Gold is its purely mechanical extraction, completely without the use of mercury, cyanide or other potentially harmful chemicals. This is an absolute rarity in gold mining worldwide. For the clean extraction of this gold, advanced mechanical and gravimetrical processes are applied.

The Fairmined certification system is secured by independent, accredited certification organisations. This guarantees that the mining organizations comply with the requirements of the Fairmined Standard. The entire supply chain is audited, which encompasses all companies working with Fairmined Gold, from the mine to a finished piece of jewelry.
Benefits for mining communities:
- A guaranteed minimum price for the precious metals
- A premium for better living and working conditions and community development
- Investment in organisational and social development and environmental protection
The Fairmined initiative was founded by the Alliance for Responsible Mining (ARM), an international non-governmental organization that is regarded as a pioneer and leading organisation in its work with responsible small-scale gold mines since its foundation in 2004. ARM supports this form of mining to make it an legal, organized and profitable activity that works with efficient technologies and is socially and environmentally responsible.
To achieve this goal, Fairmined works with all relevant stakeholders throughout the supply chain: From artisanal mines to legislators, manufacturers, jewelers and consumers. This stakeholder forum is the largest in this area and represents the various perspectives of the respective groups in a joint programme.
