Laying the groundwork for responsible resource development and lasting community benefits

Bluestone Resources is driving stakeholder value through responsible, sustainable and innovative development.

Bluestone Resources is advancing Cerro Blanco Gold and Mita Geothermal projects in southeastern Guatemala. Cerro Blanco is a permitted, high-grade underground gold project, and Mita Geothermal is an advanced-stage, renewable energy project licensed to produce up to 50 megawatts of power. As a values-based company, Bluestone is committed to investing in its people, local communities and operating in a safe and sustainable manner utilizing innovation and respecting the environment.

The Lundin Foundation began supporting Bluestone in 2020, in preparation for the construction phase of the Cerro Blanco gold project. The Foundation works closely with Bluestone to align the company’s sustainability priorities and prepare programs to provide economic benefits for local communities during construction and into operations.

The Foundation collaborates with Bluestone’s country and site teams to strengthen capacity, build the framework for community engagement and investment, develop sustainability management and reporting practices, and forge partnerships with international organizations to carry out programs of common interest.

Leveraging its track record and experience with other Lundin Group companies, the Foundation is also developing specific local content programs for training, hiring and procurement to maximize benefits for local communities. The robust nature of the Foundation’s partnership with Bluestone will set the groundwork for driving stakeholder value through responsible and sustainable resource development.
