You don't hear about big Industrial Mining companies like Vale being great stewards of the environment very often. I was suitably impressed while I visited the Voisey's Bay mine site to see such great attention to managing the companies waste stream. It makes good economic sense to be good stewards of the environment. Everywhere you go around the mine site, camp and mill buildings, you see four separate bins. not only waste generated by the operation of the mine but also collecting all runoff of rain and snow to remove any pollutants that might be present in the ground water.
