Demonstrating Environmental Responsibility

We understand that mining and energy production disturb the natural environment. Our general approach is to avoid environmental impacts wherever we reasonably can, and minimize, manage and remediate any remaining impacts. In this way, we can limit our impacts while seeking innovative ways to support environmental protection.
