Bannerman Resources Limited is a uranium development company headquartered in Perth, Western Australia, with its principal asset being the 80%-owned Etango Uranium Project located in Namibia, southern Africa. Bannerman’s Health and Safety, Environmental and Social policies are central to the way Bannerman and its personnel do business.

Bannerman’s approach to health and safety includes effective risk management, leadership, integration of the health and safety system into day-to-day operations, acknowledgment of good safety behaviour, and reviews and performance assessments.

Bannerman cares for the environment through leadership, cooperation, participation and consultation. The company integrates its environmental management system into day-to-day operations, seeks to continuously improve its environmental performance, and maintains an open line of communication with stakeholders. Bannerman has a social policy that facilitates enduring and mutually beneficial relationships with its neighbouring communities, including local towns and businesses.

In fulfilling our obligations to the people of Namibia, Bannerman’s Board, management and employees strongly believe that actions speak louder than words.

Bannerman’s Early Learner Assistance Scheme has to date paid school fees and donated school uniforms to over 600 primary school students in numerous towns within the Erongo region, and Bannerman has an active bursary programme that currently assists five Namibian employees with their tertiary education.

Recently, Bannerman received a grant for N$227,500 from the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade to support the tertiary vocational training and development of seven students from the Erongo region. These students will qualify as electricians, fitters and diesel mechanics.

Bannerman has also pioneered cooperation with the Coastal Tourism Association of Namibia and the Hospitality Association of Namibia.

Bannerman has an outstanding record of drill site and vehicle track rehabilitation, fostering the creation of a new Namibian company, Elga Enviro, which now also services other mining clients in the local region.

Effective Corporate Social Investment is a function of pro-active and genuine community engagement via initiatives that are both sustainable and empowering. It is a long-term and meaningful partnership with stakeholders.
