The percentage of its gross global Scope 1 GHG emissions that are covered under an emissions-limiting regulation or program that is intended to directly limit or reduce emissions, such as cap-and-trade schemes, carbon tax/fee systems, and other emissions control (e.g., command-and-control approach) and permit-based mechanisms 0.0000%
The entity shall discuss its long-term and short-term strategy or plan to manage its Scope 1 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions Red Pine is an early exploration stage  company
with emissions mainly from light passenger
vehicles, camp power generators and
contracted drill rigs.  We do not have any
production assets and as such only emit small
amounts and are diligent to maintain this
standard.  

Red Pine is in the process of reviewing the use
of GHG's and the best possible ways to lower
GHG emissions through the use of Solar or
Hydro power.
Carbon Offset
Credits

Air Emissions
Report emissions of air pollutants that are released into the atmosphere
Emissions of carbon monoxide, reported as CO (tonne) 0.000
Red Pine is currently producing  emissions of
CO2 from our camp generators.  Other Air
emissions are not directly monitored as they
are negligible as the Wawa Gold Project is still
at an exploration stage in development.  

Air quality is a valued ecosystem component
because of its importance for visibility and its
effects on worker health and safety, as well as
for wildlife, vegetation, and water quality. Air
quality management focuses on prevention, as
this is the case Red Pine ensures heating and
cooking appliances are properly maintained
and ventilated, that all combustions and
fugitive emission sources are optimally
maintained, we reduce exhaust emissions by
eliminating unnecessary travel and use low

Red Pine Exploration used the following fuel
types during the reporting period: Liquified
Petroleum Gas, Gasoline, Diesel and purchased
electricity.  The slight decrease in total energy
consumed during the 2023 reporting period
was due too the exploration activities (mainly
drilling), which was slightly less than the 2022
program.

Waste Management
Disclose the total weight of tailings produced (tonne) 0.000
Red Pine is in the exploration phase of the
project, so no tailings waste is currently
generated.
Tailings Storage Facilities Management
Does your company manage Tailings Storage Facilities No
The Company does not manage any active
tailings storage facilities, although there is a
historical tailings pond that is monitored under
the current Mine Closure Plan.  This includes
surface water monitoring and inspections of
the dam on a bi-annual basis.
Disclose the approach to the development of Emergency Preparedness and Response Plans (EPRPs) As the Company does not manage an active
tailings storage facility, there is no emergency
preparedness and response plan for such a
facility.
Innovation
Spending on Research, Development, and Technologies for waste management compliance and improvement Not Applicable
Red Pine is an exploration company and
therefore Research & Development on waste
management is not applicable to our core
business.  We are in full compliance with the
Municipality of Wawa's waste management
permits as well as the province of
Ontario's  waste management permits.
Biodiversity
Management Plan
List the environmental and biodiversity management plan(s) implemented at active sites Red Pine Exploration is currently in the process
of completing a Mine Closure Plan ("Plan").
Under this Closure Plan we are in the
monitoring stage of Vegetation and Lake
Biodiversity.  In 2022 the closure of the Mackie
Pits was started.  More details are below.
Details:  The current Wawa Gold Project is a brownfield site with 8 historic gold mines on the property dating back
to the late 1800's. The Plan was in place when Red Pine Exploration acquired the property.  As the property is a
brownfield site, we are in the monitoring stage of Biodiversity management which can be found in the current Plan
under the following headings:  

1. Revegetation
2. Surface and Ground Water
3. Aquatic Plant and Animal Life

The full details of these items can be viewed on the link below, in Red Pine Exploration's current 43-101 under
section 4.4.  

During the 2022 winter months the closure of 2 older pits on Mackie Point along the shore of Wawa Lake were
remediated.  Material from the mine site was brough in to fill the pits.  A second set of material was brough to the
pits in the winter of 2023 to make sure the pits are completely covered and mounded with material.  During a
review of the pits in the summer of 2023, it was noticed that one pit was still open; an excavator was used in the
summer of 2023 to return to the Mackie Pits and fill the slumping.  A review of the fill will be completed in the
spring of 2024.

In 2023 a new Clean Equipment policy was implement to help with Biodiversity.  This policy is to help protect from
transfer invasive species around the Red Pine Wawa Gold Site and also off site to other locations in
Ontario.  Currently Red Pine has not identified any specific invasive species on the Wawa Gold Property, and the
clean equipment policy will help to make sure our operations do not bring any to site.

Programs
Report on community relations programs, objectives and achievements in the past 3 years Our objective is to develop a mutually
beneficial and respectful relationship with local
communities within the direct area of interest
(DAI) of the mineral concessions in Wawa . By
working with the communities, landowners,
and government, we strive for the mutual
recognition of the rights of these parties as a
means of empowering each one to play a core
role in planning and implementing a strategy
for achieving an economically sustainable
future for the region.
Over the 2023 calendar year Red Pine
Exploration and its staff have engaged with the
community through events that have taken
place with the Municipality and city of Wawa.  

Red Pine was a proud to be a sponsor of the
41th annual Wawa Salmon Derby.  The salmon
derby is a large community event which draws
crowds from northern Ontario to support the
local fishing community in the Wawa Area.  Red
Pine staff also took part in the fishing derby and
sponsored the prize for the largest lake trout.

Red Pine was also able to make a large donation
through is staff members to the local Wawa
Hamper Fund.  The hamper program is a
charitable organization that has been in Wawa
since the early 1960’s and is used extensively
during the holiday season to help low income
families in need with food, clothing , presents
and any other items that may be need to enjoy a
wonderful holiday season.
