(3BL Media) May 16, 2012 - ICMM welcomes Inmet Mining as its latest member company. Inmet, a Canadian-based global producer of copper and zinc, joins 21 other leading companies as an ICMM member.

Jochen Tilk, President and CEO of Inmet, commented, “At Inmet, we are committed to growing responsibly as a base metal mining company, providing superior returns to our shareholders.  Inmet is honoured to join ICMM, a world-class organization that shares our commitment to corporate responsibility.  I look forward to our participation.”
 
As part of its membership Inmet will be required to report publicly against their sustainable development performance on an annual basis. The resulting annual member performance assessment will be published in ICMM’s Annual Review.

As a mid-tier company, we look forward to learning from other ICMM members, sharing our experiences, and working together to build solutions to the challenges associated with our business.”
 
 “We are extremely pleased to welcome Inmet as ICMM’s newest member and look forward to working together to strengthen the contribution of mining, minerals and metals to sustainable development,” said Anthony Hodge, President of ICMM. “We look forward to working with all our members as they continue to pioneer good practices in the industry.”
