Novel Wastewater Treatment Process Improves Éléonore’s Environmental Performance


In this series, we introduce you to the winners of Goldcorp’s Global Excellence Awards 2019. The Awards were launched in 2014 and are held every year to celebrate excellence and recognize achievements and successes made by individuals and teams across our organization who are thinking innovatively, finding ways to improve our business and supporting our vision of Together, Creating Sustainable Value.

Assessing the Effectiveness of Our New Community Response System at Eleonore


In an effort to increase collaboration and transparency, our Éléonore operation formally established a site-based grievance mechanism in 2016 using the principles set out in our Sustainability Excellence Management System (SEMS). Through discussions with our Cree Nation of Wemindji partners, a joint decision was made to refer to it as a “dialogue mechanism,” with the intent of facilitating meaningful conversations with our stakeholders.

Éléonore Recognized for 2016 Safety Record


Goldcorp employees understand that safety standards are in place for everyone’s protection, and each employee is personally accountable. Goldcorp’s Éléonore mine has been recognised for its outstanding safety record in the 2016 calendar year with the John T. Ryan National Safety Trophy for Metal Mines. The award is in recognition of the Éléonore mine who achieved 2,592,938 hours worked during 2016, with a reportable injury rate of 0.15, the best among Metal Mines in Canada. Similarly the operation earned Regional Safety Awards for Metal Mines in 2015 and 2014.

Eco-Offsetting at Éléonore


Located in a remote area of Northern Québec, Goldcorp’s Éléonore mine is predominantly a fly-in/fly-out mine. Before development construction at the mine even began, it was recognized that communities not just near the site but in the wider regional catchment of Nord-du-Québec could be affected by waste management and transportation issues if any community events were to be held at the mine site.
