QMines is leading by example in the mining sector

Sustainability Strategy

With copper being a vital metal in the global energy transition, QMines (ASX:QML) has committed to a net zero emissions target by 2030. In February 2022, QMines became only the third ASX listed Resources company to be certified carbon neutral under the Australian government backed Climate Active program.

As the Company transitions towards development, QMines intends to adopt a number of additional ESG strategies that demonstrate its ESG leadership in the mining sector.

Some of the initiatives adopted include the installation of renewable energy generation (solar and wind), securing long term renewable fuel supply, achieved Climate Active certification and commitments to local employment and procurement.

Active Certification

QMines is currently completing a carbon audit outlining the Company’s current CO2 emissions with a view to obtain climate active certification and become Australia’s first zero carbon copper and gold explorer…

Energy Generation

The Company has recently upgraded its onsite solar and battery backup system. The upgrade added a further 6.6kW of renewable energy generation, allowing the operations at Mt Chalmers to remain off-grid.

Fuel Supply

QMines has recently executed a long-term supply agreement with an Australian renewable fuel company. This initiative is expected to decrease Scope 1 diesel emissions used for exploration and development activities by an initial 20%.
