Environmental Protection Policy articulates our commitment to prevent
or mitigate as much as reasonably possible the impacts of mining on
the environment, improve the efficiency of our use of natural
resources (e.g. land, water, energy, etc.), reduce waste, and improve
waste recycling, through effective, efficient, equitable and
scientifically sound policies and practices.
We aim to not
only meet local laws and regulations but also to exceed them where
possible, focusing on sustainable development and adoption of best
environmental practices. We maintain ongoing two-way communication
with the communities adjacent to our operations, addressing their
concerns, initiating proactive programs, supporting common actions
and informing them about the environmental impacts of our operations.
