Our 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.
