“Agincourt Resources is committed to continuing to support environmental conservation efforts and contributing to climate change mitigation through various programs, including land restoration and tropical rainforest conservation programs, one of which is through post-mining land rehabilitation efforts. The Martabe Gold Mine has a nursery facility where 80% of the seedlings are local plant species in Batangtoru. The average seedling production has even reached 6,000 seedlings each month.
