We take our responsibility for safeguarding all environmental aspects of mining very seriously. At Quinsam, we maintain an extensive network of sampling stations to ensure the quality of water on the site. We also regularly check the Quinsam River system and surrounding lakes.
An Environmental Technical Review Committee composed of representatives from the Ministry of Environment, Ministry of Energy, Mines and Natural Gas, Environment Canada, Department of Fisheries and Oceans and the City of Campbell River review environmental and operational monitoring results on a regular basis. In addition, Quinsam works closely with many other stakeholders to further ensure environmental transparency and compliance.
