ESG (environment, social, governance) is integral to how we operate and our success as a company. In 2023 we developed an ESG strategy to encompass the principles that we live by regarding our environmental impacts, our relationships with stakeholders, and how we take care of our people.

We strive to develop understanding within the societies and environments in which we operate, while consulting with government, academic and industry researchers and non-governmental organizations, to create additional social and environmental value for each mine we explore, build, operate, reclaim and close.

We recognize the critical importance of understanding and effectively managing our ESG risks and impacts.
