Our purpose is to make a difference by developing natural resources, improving people’s lives now and for generations to come.

We are bringing the world the materials it needs by carefully developing natural resources and improving the communities we work with, now and for generations to come.

We have a simple strategy to achieve our goals by investing in high-quality metals and mining operations that complement our capabilities to unlock the potential of our operations.

Our strategy is to:

  • Optimise the performance of our existing operations
  • Unlock their potential by converting high value resource into reserve
  • Identify new opportunities to compete for capital within our capital management framework

Our strategy will see us realising the potential of our operations, delivering value to our local communities, our people, and shareholders.

With this approach, we are building a smarter business, so we can succeed no matter where we are in the commodity cycle.
