Alexco remains committed to its contributions to the economy, the environment and the communities in and around the Keno Hill Silver District. Our goal is to help provide the minerals that every Canadian needs, while doing it in an environmentally and socially responsible manner. The two sides of Alexco’s business - mining and environmental remediation - are often viewed as disparate, yet they form the fundamental components of Alexco’s core mission.
Leveraging the in-house expertise of AEG, Alexco is managing its Keno Hill exploration and silver mine operations to minimize their environmental impact. The Company’s commitment to environmental sustainability is embedded in every decision of its management group, and applies across all its operations.
Alexco’s commitment to sustainability goes well beyond achieving environmental protection. The Company also supports sustainability through commitments to its financial responsibilities, social responsibilities, open communication with employees and external stakeholders, and through maintaining the highest health and safety standards.
On the strength of these commitments, Alexco is building a profitable, financially stable company to provide ongoing value creation for shareholders and lasting economic and social benefits for local communities. Alexco hires locally whenever possible and has created a market for local businesses, reinvigorating communities in the area and helping to build skills and create opportunities for community members.
