The Socio-Economic Contribution of Responsible Gold Mining

Sunday, March 1

3:30-4:25

Room 803, Metro Toronto Convention Centre


Organizer: World Gold Council and Intergovernmental Forum on Mining, Minerals Metals and Sustainable Development

In 2013 and again in 2014, the World Gold Council published the Responsible Gold Mining Value Distribution Report, which quantifies the money spent by gold mining companies in host countries and provides an analysis of how this money is split between employees, suppliers, government, communities and investors.

This session, hosted in partnership with the Intergovernmental Forum on Mining, Minerals Metals and Sustainable Development, will be an opportunity to discuss the key findings of the Report and the contribution that responsible gold mining can make to social and economic development. 

Member companies of the World Gold Council will share data and information on the opportunities for development and community capacity that investment in gold mining generates. Representatives from the Intergovernmental Forum on Mining, Metals, Minerals and Sustainable Development and civil society will join the discussion to provide a multi-stakeholder perspective on how different actors can collaborate to achieve social and economic development. 

Speakers:

  • Terry Heymann, Managing Director, Gold for Development and Market Intelligence, World Gold Council
  • Ed Opitz, Vice-President, Corporate Responsibility, Kinross Corporation
  • Glenn Gemerts, Chair, Intergovernmental Forum on Mining, Minerals Metals and Sustainable Development
