ICMI to Hold Training and Lessons Learned Workshop in Potchefstroom, South Africa on September 6 – 7, 2012

The International Cyanide Management Institute (ICMI) will hold a training workshop on the implementation and auditing of the International Cyanide Management Code (Cyanide Code), and on the practical lessons learned from its implementation and auditing. This two-day session is for personnel of companies that have signed or intend to sign up to the Code, auditors and prospective auditors, and others with an interest in learning more about Cyanide Code implementation and auditing. On the first day, ICMI Vice President Norm Greenwald will provide an overview of the Cyanide Code and its certification process, and discuss Cyanide Code requirements for gold mines and cyanide transporters.  The second day will feature presentations from Cyanide Code-certified gold mines about their experiences with Code implementation and certification.
