National Environment Management Authority (NEMA) Audit Report, 2004

The following paragraph concludes the audit report:

"It is recommended that the Company's efforts to promote environmentally sound mining activities be acknowledged and emulated by other mining companies, especially those within the gemstone mining belt in Taita Taveta. We further recommend that the relevant certificate of compliance be issued to Bridges Exploration Ltd."

We are also one of the few coloured gemstone mining companies in East Africa to have a fully inclusive workman's compensation package for all of our employees.
