Roche was contracted to identify and evaluate the environmental impacts of the Taparko/Bouroum gold project. The objective of the environmental study was to describe the biophysical and human environment in the study area, identify the main project-related environmental and social issues, assess project impacts, develop mitigation and compensation measures, and assess the costs associated with such measures. A characterization study of water and sediment quality in the Yalogo reservoir, village water wells, and soils in agricultural and grazing land was also undertaken. The study was also designed to identify and assess the feasibility of various water supply options for the project.
