Stakeholder Engagement

Biodiversity is a key engagement topic with local and Indigenous communities, regulators and other local and national stakeholders during project permitting, throughout operations and during mine closure and reclamation.

We recognize the importance of ensuring that local and Indigenous communities have the opportunity to provide meaningful input and participate in the decision-making process.

In many cases, the land that we operate on has significant ecosystem service value for our project-impacted communities.

For example, the Mount Milligan Mine site sits on the traditional hunting and gathering territories of several First Nations groups, including Nak’azdli Whut’en, McLeod Lake Indian Band, Takla Nation, West Moberly First Nations and Halfway River First Nation. For Indigenous groups and other resource users in the area, biodiversity is linked to their cultural and spiritual values. We engage with Indigenous groups as well as local communities to understand traditional land use and current land use, and to incorporate Traditional Knowledge into our current and future plans.

  • At Öksüt, achieving net gains for critical habitat and no net loss for priority biodiversity features.
