Exploration is the first phase of the mine lifecycle
and often marks the first contact between Newmont and the community, and these interactions are critical for shaping positive future relationships. Community attitudes toward exploration and mining are formed not only by the impacts of these activities but by the expectations and concerns of the local communities themselves. Our landmark Community Relationships Review
recommended that we drive environmental and social responsibility efforts from the earliest stages of the mine life cycle, and our Exploration Guidebook helps us manage these efforts.
