Our Guiding Principles

Our guiding principles are at the core of all that we do and define the way we do business.

Act with integrity

We are committed to acting with integrity. For us, this means being honest, straightforward and accountable. We do what we say we’re going to do, whether this is amending our mine plans based on community feedback or fully reclaiming areas no longer needed for mining use.

It also means acting with respect, for our people and our neighbours. We listen to, and work with, local stakeholders to build trust, find solutions, and develop sustainable opportunities.

Behave Responsibly

Every day we strive to demonstrate that mining can be done responsibly by prioritising environmental stewardship at every stage of the project life-cycle. We asses our potential impacts and identify ways to mitigate these to ensure our environmental footprint is as small as possible. We take our responsibility to protect the air, water and soil very seriously and use best-available technologies to pro-actively measure and monitor our activities.

Operate Safely

People come first. The safety and security of our people and our neighbours is paramount. We uphold industry best practices, strictly adhere to local and Canadian safety regulations and have strict management systems in place to promote a culture where employees and contractors understand and take responsibility for their own safety and that of their coworkers. Safety is fully ingrained in the way we operate.

Engage Openly

Ethical business practices and high standards of corporate governance are central to our reputation as a trusted operator. We believe that clear, comprehensive disclosure, open communication with our stakeholders and following through on our commitments will continue to encourage confidence in our business practices.

Enrich Lives

We aim to create real, lasting and tangible benefits for the people whose lives our operations touch. Whether it is through local skill development, improved infrastructure, or better access to healthcare, our success is ultimately measured by the vibrancy of communities and the social and economic capital that endures beyond the life of our operations.
