About New Gold
New Gold is an intermediate gold producer with operating mines in Canada (New Afton Mine), the United States (Mesquite Mine), Australia (Peak Mines) and Mexico (Cerro San Pedro Mine). In addition, New Gold’s principal development projects are its 100%-owned Rainy River and Blackwater projects, both in Canada.
New Gold is committed to excellence in corporate social responsibility. We consider our ability to make a lasting and positive contribution to our host communities a key driver to achieving a productive and profitable business. At New Gold, we contribute to sustainable development by ensuring we have an understanding of the impacts of our activities on communities and the environment, and mitigating them. We apply this approach throughout the mine life cycle, from early exploration through development and operation, to decommissioning and mine closure.
New Gold believes in positively contributing to the mining industry. As part of this commitment, New Gold is a member of the World Gold Council, Business for Social Responsibility, the Mining Association of Canada, the Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada, the Mining Association of Ontario and the Mining Association of British Columbia. We are also members of the Mexican Mining Chamber, the Canadian Chamber of Commerce in Mexico and the American Exploration and Mining Association in the United States. Our Executive Chairman, Randall Oliphant, is the Chairman of the World Gold Council. We are also committed to the United Nations Global Compact’s principles on human rights, labour standards, the environment and anti-corruption.
