We will ensure that our activities are responsible and protective of the environment. Our design and operational activities adhere to the mitigation hierarchy to avoid and minimize impacts, restore on-site and offset, where necessary.
We acknowledge and respect the unceded rights, title, interests, culture and aspirations of the Wet’suwet’en to 22,000 square km of traditional territory. In April 2017, we signed a Communications and Engagement Agreement as an initial, formal step in our commitment to the Wet’suwet’en.
We will continue to engage with the community with the aim of ensuring socio-economic priorities and goals are understood and addressed. We aim to create a positive legacy of mining in the region, collaborating with our neighbours to develop opportunities that will contribute to supporting strong local communities.
Health and Safety
We believe that all activities can be completed with zero harm to personnel and that all incidents and injuries are preventable. We will provide resources to manage health and safety and expect all employees and contractors to share in the responsibility.
