Made in British Columbia

As a proud corporate citizen of British Columbia, Pretivm is focused on ensuring that the safe, successful operation of the Brucejack Mine benefits the province, in particular the communities along the Highway 37/16 corridors in the region of the mine. This area includes the communities of Dease Lake, Stewart, Terrace, Smithers, Hazelton and New Hazelton.

Of our many First Nations neighbors in this area, Pretivm's formal engagement process includes the Tsetsaut/Skii km Lax Ha, Tahltan Nation and Nisga'a Nation. The Tsetsaut/Skii km Lax Ha comprises approximately 30 members, with most members based in and around Hazelton and New Hazelton.

The Tahltan Nation's approximately 5,000 members reside in on-reserve communities in Telegraph Creek, Iskut and Dease Lake and in other communities in North America. The Tahltan are represented by the Tahltan Central Government, the central administrative governing body for the Iskut Band and the Tahltan Band.

The Nisga'a Nation's approximately 7,000 citizens live in the four Nisga'a villages of Gitlaxt'ammiks, Gitwinksihlkw, Laxgalts'ap and Gingolx, and in the communities of Terrace, Prince Rupert/Port Edward, Greater Vancouver and elsewhere in North America. Nisga'a Lisims Government represents the Nisga'a Nation, which is governed according to the terms of the Nisga'a Final Agreement, British Columbia's first modern treaty.

The Brucejack mine site workforce includes citizens who have identified themselves from over 10 different aboriginal groups in British Columbia.

We are committed to maintaining positive relationships with our neighbors, rigorous environmental stewardship and a high standard of health and safety. We view these commitments as interrelated, and the responsibility for their conduct and oversight is shared by Pretivm’s Board of Directors and senior management.
