Goldcorp Named as Recipient of Canada's
Clean Growth Program Funding
$5 Million Grant Supports
Innovation to Reduce GHG Emissions
VANCOUVER, Oct. 29, 2018 /CNW/ - GOLDCORP INC.
(TSX:G, NYSE:GG) ("Goldcorp") is pleased to announce the Government of Canada intends to support its Borden Project as
the recipient of a $5 million investment designed to spur innovation in cleaner, more sustainable mining.
The Borden Project located in Chapleau, Ontario,
will be the first underground mine in Canada to replace all diesel mobile equipment with battery electric vehicles.
"We believe the days of diesel use for
underground mining equipment are numbered and electrification of our mobile fleet is a logical way to significantly reduce the
mine's environmental footprint," said David Garofalo, Goldcorp's President and CEO. "We are partnering with like-minded
technology suppliers like Maclean Engineering and Sandvik, provincial and federal governments and First Nations to commercialize
clean technologies, improve health and safety performance, and reduce GHG emissions with the aim of improving the viability, sustainability
and profitability of our mines. It's gratifying to see multiple levels of government support innovation and our vision of a safer,
greener mining industry."
The project would be funded by Natural Resources
Canada's Clean Growth Program, which is a $155 million investment fund for clean technology research and development and demonstration
projects in three Canadian sectors: energy, mining and forestry.
"Improved environmental performance in
Canada's mining sector is one of the key paths to a low-carbon economy," said the Honourable Amarjeet Sohi, Canada's
Minister of Natural Resources. "This project helps advance clean technologies to commercial readiness, creates good middle
class jobs and reduces greenhouse gas emissions."
Borden is a key part of Goldcorp's plan to
increase production by 20% by 2021 and is expected to begin commercial production in the second half of 2019.
Goldcorp has successfully spurred innovation
in the mining sector through its #DisruptMining challenge and has invested over $10 million in a range of start-ups and new technologies
in the past two years. #DisruptMining offers entrepreneurs a platform to bring disruptive and exponential technologies to the sector,
whether it's unlocking exploration opportunities; finding operational and production efficiencies; reducing the environmental footprint
and delivering on sustainability commitments; or developing alternative ways to finance capital projects.
Any innovator interested in pitching their
idea at the #DisruptMining innovation expo and "shark-tank" style live event is encouraged to submit an application.
Full application details and requirements can be found at: www.disruptmining.com. Submissions will be accepted until November 5,
