About the Award

The Hatch–CIM Mining & Minerals Project Development Safety award was established in 2012 to recognize and reward projects with outstanding safety systems and performance. The award focuses on the safety culture and results at the mine and/or processing plant and its infrastructure during the development and construction phases of a project.

The 2020 Hatch–CIM Mining and Minerals Project Development Safety Award winner will be announced at the 2020 CIM Convention Award Gala, on May 4, 2020, in Montreal, QC, Canada.
