The World Gold Council has released a new documentary: GOLD: A Journey with Idris Elba, which explores the mysteries, stories and untold human relationship with the earth’s most precious metal – gold.
OceanaGold President and CEO Gerard Bond said he was proud the Company had been approached to be involved as an example of a leading mine closure at their Reefton Restoration Project (former Globe Progress Mine) in the South Island of New Zealand.
“To have our work in New Zealand recognised internationally as a leading example of restoration and mine closure is testament to both the culture and practice of OceanaGold and the tremendous work done by the team at the former mine site,” Mr Bond said.
“Our Purpose – mining gold for a better future – helps define our strategic and day-to-day thinking. This not only helps us to create a better future for all our stakeholders – our people, the communities that host us, our business partners and shareholders – but also makes good business sense,” he said.
“Our Company touches people’s lives and we take our responsibility to them and the environment seriously.”
“At Reefton, we are leaving behind a safe, stable and sustainable site. We show how a former mine site can be returned to nature.”
