CLEVELAND, OH- May 7, 2007 – Amidst a varied group of stakeholders at its 2007 Annual Meeting, Fairmount Minerals Ltd. advanced its commitment to sustainable development by releasing its inaugural Corporate Social Responsibility Report. The report highlights Fairmount Minerals' longstanding efforts in the areas of people, planet and prosperity. Access the full report online by visiting http://www.fairmountminerals.com/files/fm-2006csrr.pdf (hard copy available by request).

"In this report, we wanted to communicate the ways in which sustainable development has helped our organization achieve greater performance," says Jenniffer Deckard, Chief Financial Officer. For Fairmount Minerals, one of the nation’s largest producers of industrial sand, sustainable development has been a coalescing force. With twelve Sustainable Development Initiative Teams focused on various aspects of sustainability – Environmental Products and Processes, Social Responsibility, and Health and Wellness, to name a few – the company has relied on dedicated employees (the Fairmount Minerals family members) to initiate and drive sustainable projects.

According to CEO Charles D. Fowler, "Growing awareness of environmental challenges and unmet social needs in the global community will continue to influence the business landscape. Fairmount Minerals sees opportunity in sustainable development that will allow us to innovate and ensure our long-term viability."

Key achievements detailed in the 2006 report include:

  • Successful use of recycled waste oil to power machinery at a mining facility.

  • Receiving the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Business Civic Leadership Center’s Corporate Citizenship Award in Corporate Stewardship.

  • Implementation of new Community Investment Policy to guide philanthropic activities.

  • Development of new technology to significantly reduce phenol and ammonia emissions in the resin-coating process.

    Working with BrownFlynn, a corporate responsibility consulting firm, Fairmount Minerals is one of few U.S. companies to receive Global Reporting Initiative Application Level C status verification with its 2006 report. As a member of the United Nations Global Compact since August 2006, the Corporate Social Responsibility Report will also fulfill Fairmount Minerals’ commitment to communicating progress.
