Overview

Overview

Newmont's Boddington mine is located within the Saddleback greenstone belt in Western Australia. A large gold and copper mine, Boddington is located 16 km from the rural farming town of Boddington and 120 km from Western Australia’s capital city, Perth.

Boddington was a three-way joint venture between Newmont, AngloGold Ashanti and Newcrest. In 2009, Newmont purchased AngloGold Ashanti’s shares to become the sole owner of Boddington. Commercial production began in 2009, and in March 2011 the operation produced its first one million ounces of gold.

Key Facts

Boddington is one of Australia’s largest producing gold mines. Boddington produces gold and copper concentrate. Commercial production began in 2009 and the mine reached two million ounces of gold production in August 2012.

Health and Safety

We measure our success as a company by our contribution to the lives of our workers, their families and the communities living near our mines. Our ultimate goal is to achieve a culture of safety where all our people go home safe and healthy at the end of each work day.

For several years our people have been on a personal “Safety Journey” as part of an ongoing program to take responsibility for safety beyond awareness, understanding and knowledge to a level where it is intrinsic to how we think and behave.

Boddington-Health

Community

We are committed to building respectful and mutually beneficial relationships with communities near our operations. By working with community leaders, business owners, non-government organizations, government and industry we can provide the catalyst for long-term social and economic growth.

In addition to the community development programs and investments, a dedicated community relations team is based at each of our mine sites to encourage ongoing dialogue with all our stakeholders to ensure our operations contribute positively to the community’s growth.

Social Impact Assessments (SIA)

Every five years, we conduct extensive research on the impact of our operations through social impact assessments. These assessments include collecting insights and feedback from residents and other stakeholders on the impact of Boddington’s mining operation and the future needs of the community across Boddington’s extended mine life. The most recent assessment (2011) revealed that Boddington was a preferred mine site, offering employees an ideal work location and Iifestyle. We use this and other information gathered through the SIAs to develop and shape community relations plans.

Community Investment

Our relationships with the communities around our projects and operations are critical to the success and sustainability of our business. To ensure that these communities benefit from our presence we invest in projects and initiatives that focus on community capacity building, health, farming and agriculture, education and civil and public infrastructure.

Other investments are made in the form of grants to community groups, in addition to in-kind donations. In the past, these investments have provided support to organizations such as the Bibbulmun Track Foundation, Dwellingup Childrens’ Playground, the Boddington Centenary event, Lion’s Rodeo Weekend, as well as to local sporting clubs and organizations. We also match, dollar-for-dollar, our employees’ personal donations to not-for-profit and other community organizations.

Indigenous Rights

As part of our strong relationship and commitment with the Aboriginal People of Australia, and in recognition of their native title rights, Newmont Boddington Gold negotiated a land access agreement. The Mooditj Booja Community Partnership Agreement is a commitment to support the capacity and capability of the Gnaala Karla Booja people through employment and training, protection of heritage, and access fund paid to a trust for the betterment of the traditional owners present and future.

Environment

Our environmental stewardship programs strive to minimize our environmental footprint throughout the mine life from exploration, through construction, mining and closure and reclamation.

Boddington-Environment

We track our environmental performance through monitoring programs, and the results are independently verified and reported to the government. In particular, we have programs in place that monitor carbon emissions and energy efficiency.

Boddington Environmental Permit

In August, 2012, approval was granted by the Australian Government for Newmont to increase our Boddington operational area by 29 hectares for new water collection facilities that including storage dams to ensure the mine can secure its own water sources, as well as allow for additional waste rock areas. The permit is an interim step in a longer-term proposal to extend Boddington’s mine life to 2040 and the water storage capacity provides for the decreasing rainfall trends the locality has been experiencing over time.

Energy Efficiency

Our Australian sites continually explore opportunities to reduce the consumption of electricity, diesel and other fuels in order to reduce our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and operating costs. Our primary energy source is diesel, followed by grid electricity. These energy sources power the majority of our vehicles, facilities and infrastructure.

Carbon Offsets

In 2009, Newmont began a forestry carbon offset project, planting a total of 800,000 mallee tree seedlings in New South Wales and Western Australia. The trees are expected to capture about 300,000 tonnes of carbon over a 30-50 year period and thereby support the Clean Energy Act. The trees also improve the salinity of the soils and increase biodiversity in the area. The trees are a part of the Carbon Farming Initiative, launched by the Australian government in 2011.

Reports

Energy Efficiency Opportunities Report

Newmont participates in the Australian Government’s Energy Efficiency Opportunities (EEO) program. As a component of our participation, we conduct detailed assessments of our energy use and identify opportunities to improve energy efficiency. As a part of our transparency efforts, the 2012 and 2013 reports for our Australia operations are available online. These reports cover EEO assessments made from July 2006 to June 2012.
