With the push for companies to lower their carbon footprint, an easy target is your source of power generation. What if you could swap out your existing diesel generators with a modular system that can significantly reduce your diesel consumption? A system that easily transitions to another clean energy source such as hydrogen. This week on The DIG, host Ryan McEachern speaks to Kyle Faller, Co – Founder & CEO of Intelline; a tech company out of Waterloo Ontario. Intelline designs and manufactures modular, high efficiency diesel generators. A solution that is 40% more efficient than standard generators and if you want it can use hydrogen as a fuel source. Imagine the cost savings and the reduction in your carbon footprint.

On Episode 46 of The DIG – Joining Ryan is returning guest Todd Burns, President and founder of Cypher Environmental. Ryan and Todd discuss Cypher’s Green Roads Program. A concept that perfectly aligns with the company’s CSR and ESG strategies. The topic regarding ESG (Environment, Social and Governance) continues to make headlines with financial giants like Blackrock putting it as a focal point to their investment decision making. It is also a key agenda item in the boardrooms of many if not all mining companies. Even major mining OEMs are embedding ESG into their narrative. But where it is rarely if at all seen is part of the messaging from small to medium sized mining suppliers. The first example of ESG for MSTA CANADA has come from our member Cypher Environmental Inc and how they are approaching ESG is definitely visionary and innovative.

Joining The DIG this week is Ryan’s guest Dustin Angelo, CEO and founder of Novamera. When you talk to geologists and operators in the industry, you will hear about the countless stories of discovering high grade quartz veins on the surface. It’s extremely exciting but when you apply conventional mining techniques to the deposit, the economics don’t pan out and these deposits are left orphaned, unable to extract the value they contain in them. But what if you could find a way to change the economics by lowering the amount of water required, reducing the energy intensity and drastically minimizing the environmental footprint just by drilling them and taking the cuttings to process? It would be a game changer, however, easier said than done. That said, one company is up for the challenge, Novamera and in this episode we have CEO and founder Dustin Angelo joining us to share their story and help us understand how this is going to transform the economics of these deposits. Watch the interview now!

The federal government released its budget on Monday April 19th, and with over 700 pages there is a lot to digest. The big question is, does this budget support the needs of the mining and mining suppliers sectors? Also Prime Minister Trudeau announced at the international climate summit that Canada is committed to reducing emissions 40 to 45 percent below 2005 levels by 2030. An audacious announcement for an ambitious budget and who better to discuss these topics than Peter Hall, Vice President and Chief Economist from Export Development Canad. So…let’s get to it.
