By now it is a foregone conclusion that in order for net-zero to be achieved, the increased adoption of low carbon technologies is essential, with mining propelling the current seismic energy transition. Electric cars cannot exist without lithium, nickel and cobalt, nuclear energy without uranium, wind turbines and solar panels without copper, zinc, iron and […]
Canadian Mining Companies Recognized for Commitments to Sustainability and Outstanding Environmental and Community Engagement Achievements
OTTAWA – The Mining Association of Canada’s (MAC) Community of Interest Advisory Panel has selected the Gahcho Kué Mine, owned as a Joint Venture between De Beers Group and Mountain Province Diamonds, and Copper Mountain Mining Corporation, leaders in Canada’s mining sector, to receive this year’s prestigious Towards Sustainable Mining® (TSM) Excellence Awards in recognition of […]
The Mining Association of Canada (MAC) is the national organization of the Canadian mining industry. We represent companies involved in mineral exploration, mining, smelting, refining and semi-fabrication. Our member companies account for most of Canada’s output of metals and minerals. MAC’s functions include advocacy, stewardship and collaboration. Our goals are to promote the industry’s interests […]
To meet climate goals, the country not only needs to use battery materials, it should become a key world supplier.
The federal government has begun developing regulations to allow oilsands operators in northern Alberta to begin releasing treated tailings water back into the environment, something that’s been prohibited for decades.
Global mining major Vale and the Mining Association of Canada say they stand ready to help position the country as a major player in the global electric vehicle revolution.
To get to a lower carbon future, mining is inarguably the most important sector for the materials needed to literally piece together the tech that will lower our GHG footprint. The question is not whether we require minerals and metals to reach our climate goals, but rather if Canada will become the supplier the world needs.
Minerals and metal play an essential role in the technology we use every day. Smartphones and electronic payment machines rely on mined materials like nickel, zinc, gold and cobalt, to function. In today’s society, where efficiency and convenience are prioritized, innovation in the tech we use has influenced almost every aspect of our lives, including […]
Innovation. Powered by imagination, possible by mining. Canada has all the ingredients—sustainably-sourced minerals, metals and energy products—needed for the technologies that are powering imaginations and enabling the transition to a low carbon future. There is a natural synergy between mining and clean technology. Raw materials are transformed into technology that, having gone full circle, help […]
