Pan American Silver provides enhanced exposure to silver through large silver reserves and catalysts to grow silver production.
We manage mineral waste by designing, building, operating, maintaining and closing tailings storage facilities, water dams, heap leach pads, and waste stockpiles in accordance with the Mining Association of Canada (MAC)’s Towards Sustainable Mining (TSM) Tailings Management Protocol and the Canadian Dam Association (CDA) Guidelines.
We conduct routine inspections, geotechnical and environmental monitoring, safety reviews, risk assessments, audits, and independent reviews of our facilities to improve our management systems continually and minimize the chance of an incident occurring at our facilities.
All sites measure and monitor the generation and disposal of industrial and domestic waste and have established operational procedures and commitments to manage and reduce waste.
(1) The 2022 base case is our projected 2022 water use, energy use, GHG emissions, and waste generation, as calculated using our life of mine plans adjusted for annual production guidance.
