"The development of a nation is dependent on the evaluation and exploitation of its subterranean resources" – Mustafa Kemal Ataturk
Our vision is to enable the discovery and development of world class gold resources in Turkey. Through our work with legislators, the media, educators and the finance community we aim to help foreign and local mining operators, developers and explorers establish thriving operations within our country. We work in accordance with the State’s laws and permissions and according to national and international environmental standards.
"Our mission is to assist in the sustainable development of mining operations within Turkey whilst maintaining a socially responsible and beneficial approach to the environment and the communities in which we work." – Turkish Gold Miners Association
The Association works closely with industry regulators, environmental legislators, communities, exploration and development companies. We aim to foster the development of natural resources, the engagement of local communities and the long term protection of the environment in which we operate.
