As the first gold mine of significant size in Guatemala, Goldcorp has endeavoured to build lasting partnerships with surrounding communities and strengthen families through increased health, economic, educational and social opportunities in the region in which Marlin operates. Of the Marlin Mine’s 1,582 direct workers, 97% are Guatemalan residents.

Progress continues in building strong community relationships. The implementation of the recommendations from the independent Human Rights Assessment, and engagement with the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights have improved relationships with and among the Guatemalan government and local communities.

The Sustainable Development department at the Marlin mine provides resources and funds for community development initiatives in communities near the operation and along the access road to the mine through its Organizational Development Unit. Projects are designed, selected and implemented in conjunction with community leaders and members. The Sierra Madre Foundation (SMF) is a Guatemalan foundation, funded by Goldcorp, which was formed in an effort to contribute to the development of neighbouring communities. Its mission is to assist with the planning and implementation of sustainable, community-based development and capacity building programs in San Miguel Ixtahuacán and Sipacapa.
