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:
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.
We have been certified under the International Cyanide Management Institute’s International Cyanide Management Code since June 14, 2021. This certification is a testament to our exemplary management of cyanide risks. We are the first mining company in the region to achieve this internationally recognized certification.
