Canadian-based Centerra Gold has joined the Coalition of Energy Efficient Comminution (CEEC) as a sponsor. The miner’s sponsorship is to accelerate energy and water efficiencies, and is part of a vision “to build a team-based culture of excellence that responsibly delivers sustainable value and growth.”
Centerra Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Daniel Desjardins praised CEEC for contributions toward ESG actions in the industry.
“Centerra’s financial and operational objectives are underpinned by a fundamental commitment to ethical and sustainable practices,” said Desjardins. “Our values are strongly aligned to CEEC’s mission for eco-efficient comminution; environmental, social and governance factors are our foremost priorities as we strive to continually improve the management of our operations. We see value in sponsoring CEEC and contributing to the network. Not only can we and others in industry access best practice case studies of improvement, it is an avenue for open collaboration and knowledge sharing.”
The miner has operational assets in Canada, the Kyrgyz Republic and Turkey. Its Mount Milligan mine has the distinction of being the first large new operation in British Columbia in a generation.
Centerra reported that it produced 783,308 oz. of gold and 71.1 million lb. of copper in 2019.
