About New Gold
New Gold is an intermediate gold mining company with four operating mines: the New Afton Mine (Canada), the Mesquite Mine (USA), the Peak Mines (Australia) and the Cerro San Pedro Mine (Mexico). We also have three significant development projects: Rainy River (Canada), Blackwater (Canada) and a 30% interest in El Morro (Chile).
We are a significant participant and major economic contributor to local communities everywhere we operate. Our long-term success depends on our ability to earn and maintain the trust of our host communities and governments – trust that comes from respecting local cultures, caring for the environment and contributing to long-term economic well-being.
We contribute to sustainable development by acting ethically and with integrity regarding the impacts of our decisions and actions on communities and the environment. We apply this approach through the mine life cycle, from early exploration through development and operation, to decommissioning and mine closure.
New Gold is a member of the World Gold Council, Business for Social Responsibility, the Mining Association of Canada, the Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada, and the Mining Association of British Columbia. We are also members of the Mexican Mining Chamber and of the Canadian Chamber of Commerce in Mexico. Our Executive Chairman, Randall Oliphant, is the Chairman of the World Gold Council. We are also committed to the United Nations Global Compact’s principles on human rights, labour standards, the environment and anti-corruption.
