Towards Sustainable Mining Initiative

We have complied with the principles of the Mining Association of Canada’s (MAC) Towards Sustainable Mining initiative (TSM) since 2016. Participation in the TSM initiative shows a commitment to acting responsibly and adopting social, economic and environmental practices that are aligned with our stakeholders’ priorities and values.

We have incorporated the following TSM protocols into our operations:

  • Biodiversity Conservation;
  • Aboriginal and Community Outreach;
  • Crisis Management and Communications Planning;
  • Energy and GHG Emissions Management;
  • Tailings Management;
  • Safety and Health Management


In 2019, we conducted a TSM self-assessment of each protocol in order to measure performance.

The assessment confirmed strong performance for all indicators of each protocol and identified improvements needed to comply with all MAC criteria. Our results will undergo an external assessment in 2020.

International Cyanide Management Code

We are in the process of obtaining certification from the International Cyanide Management Institute, through our voluntary membership in the International Cyanide Management Code, which will enable us to enhance the safe management of cyanide at the mine site.
