Access to practical tools & resources to help Canadians better understand and conserve wetlands.


The Guide was developed as an extension of MAC's Environmental Policy and Environmental Management Framework, specifically applied to tailings management. It encourages mining companies to practise safe and environmentally responsible management of tailings facilities through the development of customized, site-specific management systems. This approach can help the industry develop effective self-regulation, demonstrate due diligence, complement government regulations, practise continuous improvement, and protect the environment and the public.
