Responsible environmental stewardship is everyone's responsibility!

CMAC-THYSSEN Mining Group bases its decision-making process on a sustainable development policy so that it can incorporate all appropriate environmental protection measures into its actions and operations. By complying with an environmental policy, the Company is able, among other things, to help Canada become a global pioneer in environmentally responsible mineral management.

Production methods for minerals and metals, which are non-renewable resources, can have undesirable environmental consequences when inadequately monitored. That is why processing tailings with no economic value remains essential.

CMAC-THYSSEN Mining Group is committed to being directly involved in environmental management by carrying out projects that improve the environment, and encourages its associates and collaborators to do the same. It does so, first and foremost, by giving priority to site cleanliness, safe equipment and consumables storage, resource use, and waste production, disposal and recovery.

CMAC-THYSSEN Mining Group believes that environmental sustainability will enable Canada to remain globally competitive in the mining industry through trade and investment.
