Our commitment to act responsibly is essential to First Quantum's success and our ability to generate shareholder value. Our sound corporate governance practices, and their regular review, are essential to the well-being of the Company and its shareholders.

Our governance practices are consistent with the requirements of Canadian National Instrument 58-101 - Disclosure of Corporate Governance Practices and the guidance suggested under National Policy 58-201 - Corporate Governance Guidelines. Our corporate governance framework governs how our Board operates through detailed Board and Board Committee charters which set out clearly how the Board manages its governance obligations. There are clear descriptions setting out the responsibilities of the Chairman and CEO and the Lead Independent Director. On an annual basis, the Board reviews and updates the board manual which contains details of the governance framework and key policies to ensure that they remain relevant and appropriate.
