Chairman’s Report

The last financial year has seen Newcrest continue to deliver against its profitable growth pillar.

Managing Director’s Review

During the period we had no fatalities or life-changing injuries.

Forging a stronger Newcrest

The health and safety of our people is of primary importance at Newcrest. 

Our clear focus remains on eliminating fatalities and life-changing injuries from our business, while striving to make continual progress on reducing all injuries and health impacts.

We believe that a strong and enduring commitment to the health and safety of our workforce best reflects our values and underpins and sustains optimal business performance.

To achieve Newcrest’s full potential for our stakeholders, our company strategy focuses on five key pillars, each with associated aspirations which were set in February 2016.

Our Edge

Being agile, bold and having an owner’s mindset

Newcrest’s three key external stakeholders are:

Communities

Newcrest’s mining and exploration activities have the potential to significantly impact the communities in which we operate.

Shareholders

Newcrest aims to safely deliver superior returns to our shareholders through the discovery and development of gold/copper orebodies and from our operating gold/copper mines.

Government

We believe Newcrest’s activities positively contribute to the economy of the jurisdictions in which we operate through tax, royalties and other socio-economic benefits at the community level. 

Asset Overview

Newcrest owns and operates a portfolio of predominantly low cost, long life mines and has a strong pipeline of brownfields and greenfields exploration projects.

  3. Reserve life is indicative and calculated as proven and probable gold reserves (contained metal) as at 31 December 2019 divided by gold production for the 12 months ended 30 June 2020. The reserve life calculation does not take into account future production rates or gold recovery rates and therefore estimates of reserve life do not necessarily equate to operating mine life.
