Global Mining Survey Seeks Jesuit Participation – Extension of Deadline

The Justice in Mining Network is conducting a survey of mining activity and related issues in communities where Jesuits have a presence either individually or through institutions.

The survey deadline has been extended to allow for greater participation.  Respondents are now asked to submit their responses by no later than Sunday, 30 April 2017.

The purpose of the survey is to identify the key concerns around mining and its related impacts in areas where there is a Jesuit presence.  The results will inform the Justice in Mining Network of the most pressing issues in regions where Jesuits work, helping the Network formulate its strategies for how and where it can assist and/or influence.

The survey is directed at any Jesuit or Jesuit institution e.g. Jesuit social centre, Jesuit educational institution, Jesuit spirituality centre, or Jesuit residence.  Whether the respondent’s work concerns mining issues or not is not important.  The survey seeks to identify mining-related issues occurring in the respondent’s geographical region of operation.

The survey comprises 27 questions and should not take more than 20 minutes to complete. The survey can be accessed via:

The survey is being funded by Magis through the Xavier Network.  Responses will be analysed by the Justice in Mining Network and a summary of results will be distributed to respondents and the broader Jesuit community.

Respondents should indicate if there are aspects of their response that they wish to keep confidential.
