Describes operational activities and associated environmental concerns of this industrial sector. The document applies to the complete life cycle of mining, from exploration to mine closure, and environmental management practices are recommended to mitigate the identified environmental concerns. The recommended practices in the Code include the development and implementation of environmental management tools, the management of wastewater and mining wastes, and the prevention and control of environmental releases to air, water and land. The Code of Practice will be adopted by Environment Canada and others as a guidance document that recommends environmental protection practices for the mine life cycle. The Code applies specifically to metal mines but will provide useful guidance for all sectors of the mining industry.
