The environmental control program at Cassiar Mine is an active one involving government, unions and company personnel all working together to achieve a goal — "A clean and safe working environment". This can only be achieved by utilizing three of Cassiar's most important resources; i.e., people, time and money. Past environmental programs have more than proved that the goal can be reached and, with the future programs now in progress, Cassiar Asbestos will achieve its environmental goals.
