In recognition for its leadership in sustainable mining, Glencore’s Kidd Operations has been awarded a Towards Sustainable Mining Leadership Award by the Mining Association of Canada (MAC). According to a statement from MAC, nine facilities across Canada were honoured with TSM Leadership Awards.

This award is given to facilities that meet or exceed a Level A ranking for all indicators under the tailings management, energy use and GHG emissions management, Aboriginal and community outreach, biodiversity conservation management, and safety and health TSM protocols, and meet all requirements of the crisis management and communications planning protocol.
