About PwC’s Art of mining photography contest

The PwC’s Art of mining photography contest highlights transformation in the mining industry and showcases the positive impact our industry has at home and abroad.

About the winning picture

In our eyes, mining transformation is aiming towards a gradual increase in activities but with a noticeable decrease in its environmental impact. Thus, the photo submitted jointly with Tugliq Energy puts forward the wind turbine installed in Katinniq, which has avoided the combustion of 10 million liters of diesel since 2014 in one of the most fragile ecosystems of our planet: the Canadian Arctic. Introducing renewable energy assets to mining activities opens up a whole new era of opportunities to avoid more greenhouse gases emissions. For us, mining transformation looks like this picture!
