THE VOICE OF THE CANADIAN

MINING INDUSTRY SINCE 1935

International Initiatives

While mandatory for their Canadian facilities, a growing number of MAC members are voluntarily applying TSM and publicly reporting performance for their international operations. These include First Quantum Minerals, Agnico Eagle Mines Limited, Hudbay Minerals, IAMGOLD Corporation and Excellon Resources. Teck Resources Limited, New Gold, and De Beers Canada Inc. apply TSM at their international facilities, but their results are not reported publicly. By adopting TSM at their operations abroad, these companies demonstrate that they are managing mining risks responsibly throughout the world at the same high standard as their Canadian operations.

International application of TSM, however, is not always feasible for companies. Many MAC members follow other standards and participate in various international initiatives that drive environmental and social performance in the mining sector and foster performance improvement. The table below summarizes the implementation of these standards globally, using the most recent reporting from companies.
