About the Cyanide Code

The Cyanide Code is amongst the most established certification programs in the mining sector.  This voluntary industry program is focused on the safe management of cyanide by companies producing gold and/or silver and by companies producing and transporting cyanide. It was developed under the aegis of the United Nations Environment Programme by a multi-stakeholder Steering Committee. The Cyanide Code is intended to promote and help ensure the safe and environmentally responsible management of cyanide used within the gold and silver mining industries. Operations are assessed for compliance triennially by qualified, independent auditors. 


CodeCasts is a series of short (10 to 15 minute) podcasts developed to explore and explain specific topics within the Cyanide Code and its expectations. CodeCasts are designed to supplement other forms of training that ICMI offers.
