Burt and Urresta Speak at Resettlement Seminar

On November 7, 2013 rePlan Principal Graeme Burt and Project Manager Renato Urresta made a joint presentation entitled “Securing Free, Prior & Informed Consent to Resettlement at First Quantum’s Cobre Panama Project” at the International Seminar on Resettlement in Medellin, Colombia.

The Resettlement Action Plan rePlan prepared for First Quantum on this Project emerged from extensive formal collective negotiations with over 600 project-affected people, many of whom lived in small, isolated indigenous communities. The Plan was written in adherence with numerous international standards and best practices, and sets a new benchmark in resettlement best practice, particularly regarding the achievement of Free, Prior and Informed Consent.

The Seminar on Resettlement, was organized by Antioquia Presente (AP), a Colombian Non-Governmental Organization.
