BBEEE Strategy >>

Our Broad Based Black Economic Empowerment strategy is based on affording opportunity to the Black Community which had been previously disadvantaged and experienced seclusion in participating in the Economic activities. The aim is to conquer the imbalance of the past by transferring ownership, management and skills improving Black participation in the economy.

Community Social Investment >>

Liyema Drilling recognizes its role and responsibility towards the community especially those affected by the mining activities which happen within their areas, which is the reason we have committed to giving back through skills development, employment and preferential procurement so that local residents within areas we operate in can benefit. An inclusive approach to BEE which deliberately advances previously disadvantaged
and affected communities as we are firm believers that Land belongs to the people
and they ought to benefit from any economic activity happening around them.

Youth Development >>

We commit to funding sustainable projects and giving way to young entrepreneurs
to add value to them so they become assets for their communities.

The approach is rather one of not just doing something and ending there but it’s
about empowering communities so that they are able to have something to depend
on even after mining activities have been exhausted.
