As a member of the Mining Association of Canada (MAC), Raglan Mine is part of the Towards Sustainable Mining (TSM) initiative for which we are audited externally on a triennial basis. Through April 2017, we were audited on TSM's six protocols.
Comparatively to our last external audit in 2014, Raglan Mine improved its performance by reaching the level of Excellence and Leadership at an AAA level for its Safety and Health, Tailings Management, and Biodiversity Conservation Management. We also proved we have robust Crisis Management Planning and maintained our AAA level for Aboriginal and Community Outreach. The Energy Use and GHG Emissions protocol has reached levels ranging between A and AAA, which is the performance expected by MAC.
These results rank us among the country's top leaders in sustainable mining development.
