Dust and Noise
At open-pit mining operations, dust levels are a major focus. All New Gold sites maintain air-monitoring stations that monitor the composition and level of dust. To minimize dust in and around our sites, we apply water spray on roadways, conserving water through the use of dust suppressants such as naturally occurring magnesium chloride.
Noise from mining sites is a health and safety concern. We make efforts to control noise, and whenever we receive a noise complaint, every effort is made to address it.
