Cyanco Corporation’s Global Ocean Supply Chain and Cheyenne Transload Facility Certified Under International Cyanide Management Code

The International Cyanide Management Institute (ICMI) announced today that Cyanco Corporation’s (Cyanco) Global Ocean Supply Chain and Cyanco’s Cheyenne Transload Facility located in the United States have been recertified in full compliance with the International Cyanide Management Code (Cyanide Code).

Cyanco’s Global Ocean Supply Chain most recently was certified in full compliance with the Cyanide Code in September 2014. Cyanco’s Cheyenne Transload Facility was certified pre-operationally in February 2017. As required under the Cyanide Code, the Global Ocean Supply Chain was again audited by independent professional third-party auditors against ICMI's Verification Protocol within three-years of its previous certification, and the Cheyenne Transload Facility was audited within six months of its first transloading of cyanide. ICMI has received and accepted the auditor’s Detailed Audit Findings Reports which found that the Global Ocean Supply Chain and the Cheyenne Transload Facility had maintained full compliance with the Cyanide Code's Principles and Standards Practices since their previous audits. The Summary Audit Reports and Auditor Credentials Forms are available on the Cyanide Code web site at Cyanco’s Transport Signatory Companies Page: http://cyanidecode.org/signatory-company/cyanco-corporation and at Cyanco’s Production Signatory Companies Page: http://cyanidecode.org/signatory-company/cyanco. The operations must be re-audited every three years to evaluate continuing compliance with the Cyanide Code.

The Cyanide Code is a voluntary industry program for companies involved in the production of gold and 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 has been 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.
