The International Cyanide Management Institute (ICMI) announced today that Ma’aden Gold and Base Metals Company’s Mahd Gold Mine in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has been certified in full compliance with the International Cyanide Management Code (Cyanide Code).
ICMI has received and accepted a Detailed Audit Findings Report prepared by independent professional third-party auditors who evaluated the Mahd Gold Mine against ICMI’s Verification Protocol and found it in full compliance with the Cyanide Code’s Principles and Standards of Practice. The Summary Audit Report and Auditor Credentials Form are available on Ma’aden Gold and Base Metals Company’s Signatory Page of the Cyanide Code website: https://www.cyanidecode.org/signatory-company/maaden-gold-base-metals. The operation must be re-audited every three years to evaluate continuing compliance with the Cyanide Code.
The Cyanide Code is a voluntary industry program for companies involved in the production of gold and/or silver using cyanide and companies producing and transporting this 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 complement an operation’s existing obligation to comply with the applicable laws and regulations of the political jurisdictions in which the operation is located.
ICMI has been established to administer the Cyanide Code, promote its adoption, evaluate its implementation, and manage the certification process. A detailed list of the operations covered by signatory companies’ applications, along with the full text of the Cyanide Code and its implementing and administrative documents, are available at www.cyanidecode.org. We invite you to read our 2018 Annual Report, which can viewed here.
