MAG’s Board of Directors has established governance guidelines and committees to manage and assist in carrying out many of its responsibilities. MAG’s committee charters define the roles and responsibilities of the committees within the governance framework of MAG. Each member of the Audit Committee, Compensation Committee, Governance and Nomination Committee, Health, Safety, Environment and Community Committee meets the independence requirements established by the (NYSE) New York Stock Exchange American and the (TSX) Toronto Stock Exchange. Our standards are shown in our Code of Business Conduct and Ethics.
MAG has a Whistleblower hotline through Integrity Counts, a Canadian provider of global ethics reporting services, as an independent and external administrator of this helpline to allow any employee, contractor or member of the public who becomes aware of a violation of the MAG Silver Code of Business Conduct and Ethics, violations of other internal policies or guidelines or violations of any applicable law or regulations to anonymously report suspected violations. Submissions can be made in English or Spanish.
