Legacy assets

Once a mine, smelter or refinery closes its operation in Canada, we aim to uphold our environmental and community commitments by undertaking the closure process in accordance with relevant regulatory and corporate requirements.

Our North American legacy operations group brings deep expertise in planning, permitting and executing closure plans, which includes activities such as demolition, land reclamation and long-term monitoring.
