Newmont has worked transparently and collaboratively with public and private entities to develop and deliver a Plan of Operations (PoO) for mining and mineral processing to the BLM. An Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) is in the early stages of development with the first key deliverable, public scoping, achieved in August 2012. This was an opportunity for the public to voice their thoughts and to become an active part of the process of how the Long Canyon Project is shaped.
Newmont Legacy Fund
The Newmont Legacy Fund, a 501 (c) (3) tax-exempt organization, was formed to create long-term community sustainability across northern Nevada and to ensure that the legacy of our employees and Newmont contributes to the health and wellbeing of future generations. This program provides an opportunity for our employees to support local non-profit organizations of their choice today or to invest in the Newmont Endowment Fund, which will provide community sustainability in the future. Newmont matches each employee’s donations dollar for dollar to increase the local benefit. Since the inception of the Legacy Fund in 2010, we have been able to support more than 150 northern Nevada non-profit organizations with over $6.7 million and have begun to grow the endowment fund by approximately $250,000 per year resulting in a current balance of over $1 million. Contact Nancy Ostler for more information on the Newmont Legacy Fund.
We believe in the importance of investing in the future of our communities. We are committed to the development of meaningful and measurable programs within our communities through volunteer efforts and financial support. Areas of interest that may receive assistance include youth, education, recreation, art, culture and history, environment, health and welfare, underserved populations and civic enhancement.
