SMRS Making an Active Difference through Honest and Ethical Conduct
Nearly every company today has some form of guidelines when it comes to ethics and behavior in the workplace. Of course, these guidelines vary according to the company. However, most include information about what is expected of an employee, what an employee can expect from the company, how conflicts should be dealt with, the protection of company information, confidentiality, and the opportunities the company has to offer. The reason these ethical guidelines are so important is because they outline the standards that each member of the team should meet. Not only this, they highlight the expectations that the public can have of an organization or company. Star Mountain Resources Inc. (OTC: SMRS) is no exception.
Star Mountain Resources is a small cap mining company focused on the acquisition of mineral properties. As such, the company must adhere to a large number of rules and regulations. But Star Mountain has set itself up to not just follow required guidelines. It has outlined a set of core values, and lives by them in everything it does. The values SMRS has implemented run throughout the company and everyone who works there is expected to support and demonstrate these values in their work.
Star Mountain believes that its core values are what define it as a company, values that include safety, dignity and respect, transparency, environmental responsibility, community, and continuous improvement. SMRS works to ensure that all its employees, directors, and officers abide by a code of ethical conduct that promotes high standards of integrity for the company and allows it to conduct its daily affairs ethically, transparently, and honestly.
This code lays out a set of rules and regulations to ensure that every person and action is evaluated fairly and correctly, informing all parties how to act in cases of conflict of interest. In addition, the code and the company’s core values and ethics are shared on the Star Mountain Resources website.
An example of this approach in action is Star Mountain’s recent acquisition of the Balmat zinc mining operations in St. Lawrence County, New York, from HudBay Mineral. Although this is a big step toward the company’s transformation from junior explorer to active producer, SMRS has aimed to keep all dealings and information about the Balmat mine as open to the public as possible in order to maintain consistency throughout its operations, now and in the future.
