The pecking order within the global gold mining industry is never more on display each year than at the Denver Gold Forum in September, with miners and developers of all sizes converging to capture the attention of big investors.

After a tough several years that saw the near wholesale changeover amongst execs of the top gold miners, the presidents and CEOs that presented were a familiar bunch.

In its presentation this year, Newmont Mining, the world’s largest gold mining company — at least for now — highlighted that it is already five years into its sweeping, companywide plan to create long-term value.

Newmont president and CEO Gary Goldberg noted that in 2017, its Tanami expansion came online in Australia; the Ahafo mine expansion in Ghana was funded; its five-year outlook improved; and its dividend grew.

He said Newmont has three priorities: “To deliver superior operational execution by running our mines safely and efficiently; to sustain a global portfolio of long-life assets by advancing profitable expansion and exploration on four continents; and to maintain a superior value proposition for our stakeholders through leading profitability and responsibility.”
