Intierra, the mineral resource intelligence company, has now become an EITI Supporting Company. Intierra is one of the first non-extractive companies to become EITI supporters. In supporting the EITI, Intierra has among other things, introduced a new mapping layer to their mapping service that shows which countries are implementing the EITI standard.
In an announcement on Intierra's website, the company says: "Our IntierraLive service makes mineral resource intelligence available to companies for making decisions on investing in exploration and mining which leads to mineral resource discoveries. It is important to us that there is transparency in the management of the revenues that result and that mining policies are developed which contribute to poverty reduction, sustainable community development and benefits for the citizens of the country in which exploration and mining is taking place."
