Implementing MAC’s Towards Sustainable Mining Framework

In 2015, we advanced our implementation of the Mining Association of Canada’s (MAC) Towards Sustainable Mining (TSM) framework. We conducted gap assessments against the management system requirements in each of the six protocols. We found that our sites’ existing practices already reflected many of the guidelines suggested by the TSM framework, particularly in the areas of Safety and Health and Community Outreach. For Crisis Management and Tailings Management, while our existing practices and maintenance were deemed robust, we identified opportunities to further improve our alignment with these TSM protocols and have taken action on these opportunities. Our development projects are also incorporating the TSM protocols into their management programs.
