Polyus Logistics becomes a signatory to the International Cyanide Management Code

In May 2021, Polyus Logistics, the logistics division of Polyus Group became a signatory to the International Cyanide Management Code of the International Cyanide Management Institute (ICMI).

The Cyanide Code is a voluntary industry program focused on the safe and environmentally responsible management of cyanide by companies producing gold and silver and by enterprises involved in manufacturing, storing, or transporting cyanide.

As a transporter of cyanide, in signing the Cyanide Code, Polyus Logistics has committed to following its Principles and to implementing its Standards of Practice.

Under the terms of the certification, Polyus Logistics will be subject to an independent analysis by external auditors every three years following the application.

Polyus Logistics is the first of Polyus’ business units to achieve certification under the Code, and the certification process for Verninskoye is currently underway. As a transport provider for the Company, Polyus Logistics will be able to operate in compliance with the Cyanide Code across all divisions.
