Our Strategy & Approach

We strive to minimize the impacts of our operations throughout the mining lifecycle with the goal of minimizing net habitat loss over the long term.

We design, construct, and operate intending to minimize our impacts on biodiversity. Our Environmental Policy sets out our commitment to not explore or develop mines in internationally designated protected areas.

Each operation maintains a biodiversity conservation system as part of a site-wide environmental management system and applies a mitigation hierarchy framework—avoid, minimize, restore, and/or offset to manage potential impacts.

Programs & Initiatives

  • Biodiversity baseline studies and impact assessments are conducted prior to the construction of new projects or changes in operations to generate flora and fauna baselines and identify threats to biodiversity beyond our operations
  • Engagement with local communities and other stakeholders on issues related to biodiversity conservation helps us manage our impacts and tailor our programs
  • Progressive reclamation restores biodiversity through rehabilitating disturbed areas no longer required for mining activities

2023 Goals

  • Achieve 80 hectares of reforestation or revegetation across all our operations
  • Continue site-level implementation of Biodiversity and Mine Closure Corporate Environmental Standard
