What we do

Exploration [icon]


Our aim is to grow, acquire and maintain a pipeline of economically viable orebodies to develop into high-quality, long-term mining operations. Development and planning for the lifecycle of a potential mine starts now and includes the design of cost-efficient, safe and environmentally responsible operations.


We operate and maintain mining and processing infrastructure, and ensure a skilled, trained and motivated workforce, to enable the cost-efficient, safe and responsible production of gold.


The sale of gold and by-products generates revenue. Solid financial management of revenue, costs and disciplined capital allocation promotes positive, sustained cash flows and returns.


The life cycle of a mine includes planning for environmental rehabilitation and responsible mine closure. Our aim is to mitigate environmental impacts throughout a mine’s life cycle, which together with social closure transitioning will help sustain host communities once mining has ceased.
