Our Purpose

To create opportunity for people through responsible mining.

We aim to create lasting mutual benefits for all our stakeholders, including contributing to the economic development of our host countries and driving an improved standard of living and wellbeing in the communities we operate within, and shareholder returns.

Our purpose - To create lasting mutual benefits for all our stakeholders

We understand the importance of bringing all stakeholders along our journey, from major shareholders, government partners, to all employees and local communities. This requires regular communication and meetings at which we listen to our stakeholders and take their comments back to the Board to help shape our governance structure and our strategy.
