Our strategy and investment case


Five key strategic focus areas have been identified to enable us to deliver on our overall strategic objective – to generate sustained and improved cash flows and returns over the longer term. These strategic areas, which guide decision-making, are aimed at generating increased cash flows; extending mine lives; creating an organic pipeline of economically viable orebodies; and enhancing our licence to operate. The overall aim is creating and preserving value for all our stakeholders.

  • Focus on people, safety and sustainability – People are the foundation of our business. To remain sustainable in the long term, we must clearly exhibit our values in the conduct of our business. This encompasses being accountable for our actions and respecting all stakeholders and the environment. ESG principles are integrated into every aspect of our business.
  • Ensure financial flexibility – We must ensure our balance sheet always remains able to meet our core funding needs.
  • Optimise overhead, costs and capital expenditure – All spending decisions must be thoroughly scrutinised to ensure they are optimally structured and necessary to fulfil our core business objective
  • Improve portfolio quality – We have a portfolio of assets that must be actively managed to improve the overall mix of our production base as we strive for a competitive valuation as a business.
  • Maintain long-term optionality – While we are focused on ensuring the most efficient day-to-day operation of our business, we maintain a close eye on creating a competitive pipeline of long-term opportunities
