Towards Sustainable Mining Verification

To support our clients in their commitment to sustainable mining, David Hamilton (Senior Biologist, Saskatoon) has completed the Towards Sustainable Mining (TSM) Verifiers Training Program administered by the Mining Association of Canada (MAC). He joins a select group of Verification Service Providers in Canada.

The TSM Program provides a set of protocols and indicators that drives and assesses performance at the facility level across three core areas: Communities and People, Environmental Stewardship, and Energy Efficiency. MAC has developed the TSM Program as their commitment to responsible mining in Canada. It is a transparent process that applies to Canadian mining operations and is also being adopted by other countries. Every MAC member carries out annual self-assessments on each of their facilities using TSM's protocols and indicators. In addition, an external verification is carried out every three years by an independent Verification Service Provider.
