Spokane

The Midnite mine – one of our legacy sites – is a former uranium mine located within the Spokane Tribe of Indians reservation in the state of Washington

Western Shoshone, Shoshone-Paiute and Confederated Tribes of the Goshute Reservation (“Goshute”)

The Western Shoshone, Shoshone-Paiute and Goshute are indigenous to the Great Basin region in which Newmont’s Nevada operations reside.

Pamaka Maroon Tribe of the Marowijne River

The Merian mine is located on the traditional lands of the Pamaka, and we engage extensively with the people of the tribe.

Gnaala Karla Booja

The Gnaala Karla Booja (GKB) are the Noongar Native Title Claimants of the land where we operate the Boddington mine in Western Australia.

Ninga Mia

The Ninga Mia Village, which houses around 100 aboriginal residents near our KCGM operation in Australia, was established in 1983 to provide more permanent accommodation for transient aboriginal people.

Warlpir

The Warlpiri people are the owners and traditional custodians of the land on which our Tanami mine in Australia’s Northern Territory is located.

Overview

Overview

Newmont has fully owned and operated the Tanami mine since 2002. The mine is located in the remote Tanami Desert of Australia. The mine and plant are located on Aboriginal freehold land that is owned by the Warlpiri people and managed on their behalf by the Central Desert Aboriginal Lands Trust.

Key Facts

Tanami added $466 million of value to the Australian economy in 2012. Tanami is a Fly-in, Fly-out (FIFO) operation in one of Australia’s most remote locations. Tanami is 270km from its closest neighbours, the remote Aboriginal community of Yuendumu.

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.

The Vital Behaviors programme which works with site crews so they self-identify the “vital behaviors” that they need to keep themselves and their colleagues safe, has been a key driver for enhancing our safety performance.

Community

We are committed to building respectful and mutually beneficial relationships with the local people 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.

As part of our commitment to enable frequent communication with the community, a dedicated community relations team is based on site at Tanami’s operations to encourage ongoing dialogue with all our stakeholders to ensure our operations contribute positively to the community’s growth. The mine site is the most remote in Australia, with the closest communities of Yuendumu and Lajamanu approximately 370 km south and 390 km north east of the mine.

Social Impact Assessments (SIAs)

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 about Tanami’s mining operation and the future needs of the community across the mine’s extended life.

Tanami’s SIA was conducted in 2009 and most recently in 2013. The findings from the 2013 SIA will be developed into an action plan for delivery in 2014.

Community Investment

Tanami contributes millions of dollars annually to Northern Territory economy through the employment of local citizens, the purchase of goods and services, payroll taxes, government royalties, land use payments, salaries and supporting community projects. We invest directly and significantly in community initiatives that support community capacity-building activities, including scholarships, in-kind support and sponsorship grants.

We also invest in cultural events. In 2010, we entered into a three-year strategic partnership with the South Australian Museum to fund a project to catalogue and digitize Australia’s largest collection of Aboriginal cultural artifacts. The online resource will make this valuable collection available to Indigenous communities and educators worldwide.

The partnership also supports the physical exhibition at the South Australian Museum in Adelaide and the mobile exhibition of the historically and culturally significant Tanami or Yuendumu Door. The Yuendumu Doors were created in 1983 by senior Warlpiri men, including Paddy Japaljarri Stewart and Paddy Japaljarri Sims, who took the historic opportunity to paint their sacred Dreaming designs onto the doors of the remote Yuendumu school, 250km north-west of Alice Springs in the Northern Territory. It was a key moment in the history of Australian art, and it symbolised the Warlpiri’s decision to explain the Tjukurrpa (Dreaming) to the world beyond their desert home. There are 30 original Doors.

Newmont also supported the 2012 Milpirri Festival, a cultural dance held every two years that brings together male and female elders, parents, and young people to express their culture through traditional and contemporary forms of dance. The Festival is credited with increasing school attendance throughout the year and connecting generations by sharing cultural customs and stories in a modern setting.

Newmont invests in community programs include support for staff housing for the Warlpiri Youth Development Aboriginal Corporation; the Waninjawarnu Project, which provides resources on nutrition and healthcare to parents; the National Indigenous Music Awards; and the Books in Willowra Homes project, which works to improve literacy among young children in the community.

Environment

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

Whether it is management of water, cyanide, energy, noise, or dust emissions, our systems and processes at Tanami ensure we meet or exceed government regulations, as wells as our own technical standards. 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.

In 2012, Tanami conducted studies on the operation’s management of water, cyanide and energy management.

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 at Tanami is diesel, followed by grid electricity. These energy sources power the majority of our vehicles, facilities and infrastructure. We are continuing to investigate the potential for solar power at Tanami. As the cost for solar generation continues to decrease, solar power may present a competitive and viable alternative compared to remote diesel generation.

Accounting and Reporting

We measure, report and verify energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. We have publicly reported our Asia Pacific carbon footprint and energy consumption since 1998, and take part in the Carbon Disclosure Project and S&P 500 Carbon Disclosure Leadership Index.

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.

Documents

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.

Australia Beyond the Mine Report

As a signatory to Enduring Value: the Australian Minerals Industry Framework for Sustainable Development, our Australia and New Zealand operations prepare an annual sustainability report. The Beyond the Mine report outlines our programs and performance particular to Australia and New Zealand.
