Our key operational focus areas

  • Complete development and ramp-up of existing projects in a capital efficient way, whilst excelling in operational efficiency, productivity and cost effectiveness.

  • Expansion in projects with high returns and low risks to reinforce our standing leadership in the minerals sector and our global competitiveness.
  • Building best in class capabilities supported by internally developed knowledge on enterprise wide expanded talent base and through strategic partnerships.
  • Managing the costs – while unrelenting in its focus on safety as it pursues its Zero Harm objectives, we seek to enhance value at our current operations by implementing a program of targeted cost reduction and efficiency improvements.
