Canadian mining companies prepare pandemic plans for coronavirus
Theglobeandmail - Like many large Canadian mining companies, Toronto-based Hudbay Minerals Inc. is taking precautionary steps in the face of the global spread of the novel coronavirus.
At its Constancia copper mine in Peru, all of its workers are being screened for any sign of the virus, with their temperatures being taken upon entry to the site. In the event of someone contracting the virus, the company has isolation facilities in place, and ambulances on standby. Back at the Toronto head office, the IT department recently did extensive testing to ensure that people can work from home if need be.
