As a multi-generational project, it is of utmost importance to Seabridge that KSM be designed for long term environmental and social sustainability. In order to ensure that KSM considers and addresses the critical present and future challenges of climate change and conservation of clean water, the Project incorporates the use of innovative technologies throughout its design. The use of sustainable innovation, particularly in the design of energy and water management systems at the site, will enable KSM to meet and exceed best practices in these areas and develop a mine that meets the needs of future generations. Some of the innovations include –

  • Using electric mine equipment instead of traditional diesel to reduce their reliance on diesel-generated power
  • On-site energy generation and recovery systems to reduce our reliance on grid power, increase energy efficiency, and employ circular solutions
  • The Project will also incorporate on-site power generation from three mini hydroelectric plants and energy recovery from various process flows in the water treatment and tailings management areas to supplement the hydroelectricgrid power used at the site.
  • For managing water at the site, we have to divert the streams and are planning to use the energy that comes from these streams.
  • All site-generated power will be used for mine operations and any excess power may be sold back to the power grid.
