The Canadian Malartic Mine has introduced numerous measures to reduce the potential impact of its operations, including:
We can completely shut down equipment when dust levels approach the levels permitted by the air quality standard or when noise levels approach the noise limits indicated in municipal by-laws and the Environmental Quality Act.
Equipment was down for more than 13,000 hours in 2019.
In 2020, the Canadian Malartic Mine fully complied with Québec standards governing air* quality, water quality, and noise. Furthermore, compliance with blasting standards was 99.1%.
* Pursuant to the Clean Air Regulation. From May 8, 2015, to December 31, 2020.
