Congratulations to our colleagues (pictured from left to right) François Bergeron, Stéphanie Lafrenière, François Dubois and Éric Bouchard, who are the winners of the 2019 Michel Létourneau Award that is presented annually by Agnico Eagle, our partner along with Yamana Gold. The award recognizes outstanding environmental achievements, among others, across all of Agnico Eagle’s sites in Canada, Finland and Mexico. Our colleagues were recognized for their work to protect bank swallows that had excavated nesting burrows in a borrow pit used for the tailings pond. Bank swallows, a protected species in Canada, nest in burrows in settings where there are vertical faces in silt and sand deposits. Borrow pit use was subsequently modified to protect the nesting burrows and encourage the bank swallows to return each year. Congratulations for this biodiversity conservation effort!
