Cyanco’s Cheyenne Transload Facility Certified Under International Cyanide Management Code

February 02, 2017

The International Cyanide Management Institute (ICMI) announced today that Cyanco’s Cheyenne Transload Facility in Cheyenne, Wyoming, was pre-operationally certified in compliance with the International Cyanide Management Code (the Cyanide Code).

ICMI has received and accepted a Detailed Audit Findings Report prepared by an independent professional third-party auditor who evaluated Cyanco’s Cheyenne Transload Facility against ICMI’s Production Pre-Operational Verification Protocol. The facility was found to be in compliance with the Cyanide Code’s Principles and Production Practices. Cyanco’s Cheyenne Transload Facility has been conditionally certified and will be audited within six months of its first cyanide transloading to evaluate its operational compliance with the Cyanide Code. The Cheyenne Transload facility will then be re-audited every three years to evaluate its continuing compliance with the Cyanide Code.

The Cyanide Code is a voluntary industry program for companies involved in the production of gold or silver using cyanide and companies producing and transporting this cyanide. It was developed under the aegis of the United Nations Environment Programme by a multi-stakeholder Steering Committee. The Cyanide Code is intended to complement an operation’s existing obligation to comply with the applicable laws and regulations of the political jurisdictions in which the operation is located.

ICMI was established to administer the Cyanide Code, promote its adoption, evaluate its implementation, and manage the certification process. 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.
