Hummingbird is a founding member of Single Mine Origin (‘SMO’). SMO denotes gold that has been produced by a legitimate mining operation which holds no ties to conflict, where miners are being paid a just wage under secure employment. SMO gold provides a traceable and auditable chain of custody for every gram of gold produced directly to the mine where the gold was sourced.
Furthermore, SMO looks to ensure metal has been produced within strict parameters of corporate, social and environmental responsibility measures.
