Corporate Governance

The interests of shareholders and the strategic direction of the company are overseen by a Board of Directors with extensive international experience in banking, finance, mining and minerals, as well as a thorough understanding of contemporary corporate governance requirements.

The Board fulfills its responsibility directly as well as through four working committees:

Recognizing the benefits that variety brings to the company, we have a Board Diversity Policy and we strive to achieve diversity both on the Board and in senior management.

The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee and the HSE Committee assist the Board in fulfilling its responsibilities related to social and environmental development.

Within the company, the CEO is responsible for:

  • Ensuring the implementation of standards and systems to ensure compliance with all applicable regulations and safety standards
  • Providing overall leadership to management in support of the company’s commitment to social and environmental development and business sustainability
  • Ensuring that employees, consultants, and contractors address, in a respectful and transparent fashion, issues and concerns of Aboriginal people
  • Setting the ethical tone for the company and its management
