Newcrest Mining Limited

Newcrest is the operator of the Lihir Gold Mine, the largest gold producer listed on the Australian Stock Exchange and one of the world's largest gold mining companies.

Newcrest’s vision is to be the Miner of choice™ for all stakeholders including our people, the communities in which we operate and our shareholders. Social responsibility, safety and sustainability are fundamental guideposts to our vision.

Newcrest owns and operates a portfolio of predominantly low cost, long life mines and a strong pipeline of brownfield and greenfield exploration projects. Our reserve and resource base is strong, with gold reserves representing more than 25 years of production at current rates.

Newcrest's asset portfolio includes operating mines that use a variety of efficient mining methods for large ore bodies, together with selective underground mining methods to optimise high-grade epithermal deposits.

Our mines are located in Australia, Papua New Guinea (PNG), Indonesia, and in Côte d’Ivoire, West Africa. Current operations include:
  • Cadia Valley Operations (near Orange, New South Wales)
  • Telfer (Pilbara Region, Western Australia)
  • Gosowong (Halmahera Island, Indonesia)
  • Lihir (New Ireland Province, PNG)
  • Hidden Valley (Morobe Province, PNG)
  • Bonikro (Côte d’Ivoire, West Africa)

Discovery of new ore bodies is an important element in Newcrest’s strategy and the company has a strong and successful exploration track record. A key objective of Newcrest’s exploration activities is to secure large mineral districts, or provinces, in order to establish long-term mining operations, while enhancing the potential for further discoveries.

Headquartered in Melbourne, Australia, Newcrest is among the top 20 companies listed on the Australian Stock Exchange. It is also listed on the Toronto and Port Moresby Stock Exchanges.
