Update to Signatory Listing – Withdrawals in First Quarter 2023

The International Cyanide Management Institute (ICMI) announced today that the following five companies have voluntarily withdrawn as signatories from the Cyanide Code program in the first quarter of 2023: Compagnie Minière Montagne d’Or (France), Zeal Environmental Technologies Limited (Ghana), Arizona Logistica Ltda. (Brazil), Nowata Burkina Faso SARL (Burkina Faso), and SAM IK Logistics (Korea).

Two of the companies were certified under the Cyanide Code program: Arizona Logistica Ltda. in January 2020, and SAM IK Logistics four times with its last certification in March 2020. The withdrawals are effective this date.

The Cyanide Code was developed under the aegis of the United Nations Environment Programme by a multi-stakeholder Steering Committee and is amongst the most established certification programs in the mining sector. The Cyanide Code is intended to complement an operation’s existing obligation to comply with the applicable laws and regulations of the political jurisdiction 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 for operations using, producing, and transporting cyanide. 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.
