Canadian mining companies recognized for excellence in responsible operations – Environment Journal

May 29, 2024

The Mining Association of Canada’s (MAC) Community of Interest Advisory Panel has selected Rio Tinto IOC,  Agnico Eagle’s Laronde Mine, and Eldorado Gold’s Lamaque Mine, to receive this year’s prestigious Towards Sustainable Mining® (TSM) Excellence Awards. The three projects were recognized recently at the CIM Awards Gala in Vancouver, B.C.

“Mining companies recognized by the TSM Excellence Awards represent the best of the best when it comes to exemplary responsible practices and strong commitments to ESG,” said Pierre Gratton, MAC’s president and CEO. “Our industry has a particularly important role to play in ensuring the minerals and metals needed for the technologies we rely on are readily available and it is essential that they be mined using the highest standards in the world, like TSM.”

A mandatory component of MAC membership, TSM is driving performance improvement across a range of social and environmental issues where it matters most — at the mine site level. This focus on mine site performance makes TSM a go-to system for investors and manufacturers looking to invest in and purchase responsibly mined materials. A national independent Community of Interest Advisory Panel oversees the program, including representatives from Indigenous communities, environmental organizations, labour, finance, local mining communities, social and faith-based organizations and academia.
