Our organisational and management structures align with global best practice in corporate governance. By using our human capital efficiently, enabling functions cover planning and technical, strategy, sustainability, finance, human resources, legal and compliance, and stakeholder relations. The planning and technical functions focus on identifying and managing opportunities, maintaining long-term optionality, and ensuring the optimal use of our intellectual capital through a range of activities that include brownfields and greenfields exploration as well as innovative research focused on mining excellence.
Our exploration programme is aimed at establishing an organic growth pipeline to enable us to generate significant value over time.
