Responsible Mining

New Gold is committed to responsible mining in all mining, processing and environmental work across our operations and facilities from exploration, to mining, to rehabilitation and closure. As an organization, we strive to reach the highest standards in employee health and safety, environmental protection and community development and engagement. We believe these are key drivers to achieving a productive and profitable business.

Our policies and practices are guided by principles found in the United Nations Global Compact of which we are signatories, and our operational standards are based on the Mining Association of Canada’s Towards Sustainable Mining Protocols.

We published our social closure Report on April 24, 2023.

Community Relations

New Gold is committed to working closely with communities to make a positive contribution to the community and regions in which we live and work. We recognize that our growth and success depend on the long-term economic, social and environmental sustainability of each of the communities in which we operate.

The Cerro San Pedro mine has been an economic bedrock in the community for decades. As the mine nears the end of its productive life, New Gold has invested heavily in equipping the community and mine workers with the tools to transition to a sustainable post-mining economy. Through these efforts there are several new businesses in the region operating financially independently of New Gold support.
