The International Cyanide Management Institute (ICMI) announced today that CITSSA Investments SAC and CITSSA Logistics SAC have been removed as signatories to the International Cyanide Management Code (Cyanide Code) for nonpayment of the required annual fees, and the companies’ participation in the program has ended. To remain in good standing, signatories are required to pay annual fees to support ICMI’s activities administering the Cyanide Code; the 2017 fees were due at the end of February 2017. Both companies are transporters in Peru, and CITSSA Logistics SAC’s operation was most recently certified in compliance with the Cyanide Code in October 2014.
The Cyanide Code is a voluntary industry program of best practice for companies involved in the production of gold and silver using cyanide and companies producing and transporting this cyanide.
