EXPLORATION & APPRAISAL

We invest in growing our existing assets and have an excellent track record of extending mine life wherever possible.

We invest in local infrastructure and water supplies to the benefit of local businesses and communities.

ASSET DEVELOPMENT

We develop world-class assets investing in productivity and focusing on continuous improvement to manage asset life as effectively as possible.

Growing our assets generates direct and indirect employment through sourcing of local labour, goods and services.

EXTRACTION

We operate low cost mines and oil fields, capitalising on our diverse portfolio to optimising production across commodity cycles, our strong position in India and our proximity to emerging markets.

PROCESSING & VALUE ADDITION

We focus on operational excellence and high asset utilisation to deliver top quartile cost performance and strong cash flow, selectively converting some of our primary metals into higher margin products, such as sheets, rods, bars, rolled products in our aluminium, copper and zinc businesses.

Moving into full production generates value for all stakeholders:

  • We provide personal development, training and healthcare for employees
  • We invest in community initiatives around our assets
  • We initiate environment projects to minimise the impact of our operations and increase bio-diversity
  • We develop close relationships with customers and suppliers
  • We generate a consistent dividend stream for shareholders and significant tax contributions to host governments

END OF MINE LIFE

We work closely with local communities and regional governments to rehabilitate our mines and restore the natural habitat.
