Weir and Agnico Eagle sign up to CEEC Global Water Initiative

CEEC International, an independent global not-for-profit committed to accelerating the adoption of eco-efficient minerals and metals production practices, has welcomed both Weir and Agnico Eagle Mines as premium sponsors and early adopters of its Global Water Initiative.

Weir, a respected provider of engineered solutions to the resources sector, shares CEEC’s mission to drive the adoption of eco-efficient practices within the industry. Its renewed support as a premium sponsor underscores the company‚Äôs dedication to advancing sustainable minerals and metals production, according to CEEC.

The support from Agnico, a major gold producer, signifies a strategic alliance and collaboration aimed at promoting sustainable mineral processing and improved understanding of water management within the resources sector, CEEC said, with the association between the two companies grounded in a shared vision to accelerate the adoption of eco-efficient practices in the resources sector.

The Global Water Initiative, officially launching at the MetPlant 2023 Conference, being held on November 5-8 in Adelaide, Australia, is a critical step towards addressing water management and risk mitigation in the resources sector. The initiative seeks to build a shared understanding, identify gaps and outline necessary actions to ensure responsible water usage within the industry.

CEEC’s mission is to facilitate knowledge sharing, cross-sector collaboration and advocacy of eco-efficient practices within the global resources sector. By disseminating research findings, analytical tools and innovative solutions, CEEC aims to reduce energy and water consumption, as well as other associated impacts in mining, processing and refining of minerals, it says.

CEEC International says it encourages industry stakeholders to join the initiative, contribute to the discussions and collectively shape a more sustainable future for water management within the resources sector.
