Newmont Mining Corporation New Job Announcement
POSITION: Land Management Officer
Newmont Mining Corporation is one of the biggest gold producers in the world, and its most important properties are in Nevada, Peru, Australia, Ghana, and Suriname.
The Ahafo Mine is in the Brong-Ahafo region, and the Akyem Mine is in the Eastern region. Both are owned by Newmont’s Africa Operations. Ghana is also putting a lot of effort into near-mine exploration and development in order to replace its gold stocks every year. Newmont Africa also has projects in Ethiopia and Morocco that are just getting started.
Our business in Africa has about 5,900 workers and contractors, most of whom work at the Ahafo Mine. With all the perks you’d expect from a global company, we offer a unique mix of opportunities and job satisfaction. This, along with the chance to grow, makes Newmont a great place to work.
Our Akyem and Ahafo mines have put a lot of money into making the areas where they are located more sustainable. These include setting up Development Funds in the areas where we do business in Akyem and Ahafo. Each mine will put US$1 per ounce of gold sold and 1% of its yearly net profit before taxes into its own Development Fund.
Newmont was the first gold company to be chosen for the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index in 2007. It is the only gold company in the S&P 500 index. Newmont’s high standards for environmental management, worker health and safety, and providing value and opportunities for employees, host communities, and Newmont’s shareholders show that the company is a leader in its field.
