Our Strategy & Approach

We start planning for closure in the design phase of a new project. Each operation has a closure plan covering environmental, social, and economic aspects and providing estimated closure costs.

We engage with local communities, governments, and other Communities of Interest in the creation and/or update of our closure plans to understand their reclamation objectives, identify post-closure land uses, and identify opportunities for economic diversification and sustainable community development.

Programs & Initiatives

  • Closure plans establish the relevant technical, environmental, social, and financial aspects of each mine closure
  • Progressive closure entails reclaiming disturbed land and waste rock facilities once they are no longer required by our operations
  • Post-closure monitoring of risks and controls to assess alignment with closure plan objectives

2023 Goals

  • Continue post-closure activities at Alamo Dorado and conduct interim reclamation projects at our active operations
  • Continue participatory social closure planning at Dolores and carry out Phase 1 progressive closure activities
