Mark Bristow said: “The Barrick-Randgold union was driven by a vision of real, sustainable value creation for all stakeholders, and the same motivation provided the rationale for the Nevada joint venture. The opportunities and efficiencies arising from the combination will maximize the potential of the Nevada gold fields and will deliver longer profitable mine lives, longer term employment, longer term benefit sharing with local communities and longer-term support for the state’s economy,” External link

Mark Bristow said: “It positions Northern Nevada as the world’s greatest gold mining complex. By combining the assets, talents and expertise of Barrick and Newmont, the joint venture will extend employment and economic opportunities in the region much further than what each company could have done on its own. There is a reason Nevada is an attractive destination for mining investment and it’s not only because of the state’s mineral endowment. Here we also enjoy a fruitful, rewarding partnership with the state and federal government in growing a responsible, safe and productive industry for our local communities,” External link

Mark Bristow said: “Ten years ago, we went to a remote part of Africa and found what we believed was a real world-class opportunity but one which would require a major investment as well as a lot of courage to develop. That opportunity became Kibali, which poured its first gold in September 2013 and ramped up to full production during 2018,” “We invested in the DRC without any incentives provided by the government, only a clear and equitable mining code. Last year, however, the then government unilaterally imposed a new code which we believe puts the Congolese mining industry at risk and could discourage future investment. We continue to engage with the government on this issue, and were encouraged when the new President, his excellency Felix Tshisekedi, outlined his vision, of attracting foreign investment and developing the industry in a spirit of partnership, to Barrick’s executive chairman John Thornton at a meeting earlier this year. It is this partnership that enabled the creation of Kibali and supports Barrick’s search for new world-class gold deposits in the DRC” External link

Mark Bristow said: “Our presence here has also been a force for good in many other ways, and the development projects and education and training initiatives we have funded, including our donations, to the total value of 544 million Kina ($160 million) have provided schools, health services, water, power, bridges and roads, changing the lives of many for the better. The imminent reopening of the much-needed Paiam hospital in Porgera, made possible by the mine’s financial and technical support, is the most recent example of our commitment to the community,” External link

Mark Bristow said: “Tongon was discovered and developed in the midst of a civil war and since then has had to contend with almost every conceivable challenge including social and political unrest in the region, a protracted work stoppage and an erratic power supply. Thanks to a committed and courageous management team - comprised almost entirely of Ivorian nationals - the mine has nevertheless been consistently profitable, delivering significant value to all its stakeholders and pointing the way for the growth of the country’s mining industry and economy,” “On current reserves, Tongon has under three years of life left, but we hope to extend that by converting near-mine resources to reserves, exploring the potential of satellite deposits and probing targets along the Badenou trend in the Tongon lease area. We are also seeking to advance the agribusiness projects designed to provide economic opportunity and food security for the local community after the mine’s closure” External link

Alli Aydar dedi: “12 yıl önce evlendim. 4 tane çocuğum erken doğum sebebiyle öldü. Şu an bir buçuk yaşında bir çocuğum var. Bir şirkette işe başladım. O dönem eşim ve çocuğum hastanedeydi. İşe girerken, eşimin ve çocuğumun sağlık sorunları olduğunu söyleyerek izin konularında tolerans gösterilmesini istedim. İlk etapta bana bu kolaylığı sağlayacaklarını söylediler. Daha sonra söz vermelerine rağmen işten çıkarıldım. Yaklaşık 2 işsiz kaldım” External link

Alli Aydar dedi: “İşyerinde dirsek altı bulaşık eldiveni verilmişti. Eldivene giren çamaşır suyu elimi mahvetmiş. Ben çamaşır suyunun bu kadar zarar vereceğini bilseydim, işe başlamazdım. Benim çocuğum şu an kayınvalidemde kalıyor. Bakacak gücüm olmadığı için eşim çocuğumuzu daha sağlıklı beslensin diye kayınvalideme götürdü. Yaklaşık 5 aydır kiramı ve faturalarımı ödeyemiyorum. Çocuğuma ilaçlarını alamıyorum. Defalarca çeşitli yerlere iş başvurusunda bulundum. Ama bana kolum olmadığı için iş verilmedi. Engelli kontenjanından da almadılar. Bir milletvekilinden durumumu anlatarak iş istedim. Bana çorap satmamı tavsiye etti. Ben daha birşey diyemiyorum. Ben yardım istemiyorum, iş istiyorum” External link
