Living the New Gold Values:
Our Communities

Living our values means that our priorities go beyond building and operating mines. We want to be a part of the communities where we operate. So we make sure that we understand the impacts of our operations on local communities. Then we use that understanding to guide our actions, to become a catalyst for improved quality of life and to contribute to sustainable development.
