GRAND JUNCTION, Colo., Jan. 05, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — ProStar Holdings Inc. (“ProStar®” or “the Company”) (TSXV: MAPS) (OTCQX: MAPPF) (FSE: 5D00), a world leader in Precision Mapping Solutions®, is pleased to announce that multinational gold mining company, IAMGOLD Corporation (TSX: IMG) (NYSE: IAG) (“IAMGOLD”), has adopted ProStar’s flagship software application, PointMan to improve its safety operations.
“We take great pride in taking every measure possible to ensure the safety of our employees and the environment. Safety is at the forefront of all our mining operations,” stated Philippe Gaultier, Vice President of Development Projects at IAMGOLD. “By adopting PointMan, we feel confident that we are implementing a world-class utility mapping solution that will provide us the ability to identify any utility infrastructure that is buried in the ground, which can be a serious concern in terms of worker and environmental safety as well as operational costs.”
IAMGOLD employs approximately 5,000 people globally and is committed to maintaining its culture of accountable mining through high standards of Environmental, Social, and Governance (“ESG”) practices, including its commitment to Zero Harm®, in every aspect of its business.
“Having a global mining company like IAMGOLD adopt PointMan into their mining operations is a major milestone for us,” stated Page Tucker, CEO of ProStar. “Not only does it open the door to another global industry, but it also proves that PointMan addresses the growing concern of not knowing where buried utilities are located, a problem that adversely impacts the safety of the public, the worker, and the environment in a multitude of industries.”
IAMGOLD is a mid-tier gold mining company operating in North America, South America and West Africa. The Company has three operating mines: Essakane (Burkina Faso), Rosebel (Suriname) and Westwood (Canada), and is building the large-scale, long life Côté Gold project (Canada) which is expected to commence production in early 2024. In addition, the Company has a robust development and exploration portfolio within high-potential mining districts in the Americas and West Africa.
IAMGOLD is listed on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE: IAG) and the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX: IMG) and is one of the companies on the Jantzi Social Index (“JSI”), a socially screened market capitalization-weighted consisting of companies which pass a set of broadly based environmental, social and governance rating criteria.
