SUSTAINABILITY Tailings disclosure and inventory
The map below provides an overview of the tailings storage facilities located at our operating mines – the number of dams, the status (active/inactive/closed), and hazard classification.
Gold Fields fully supports greater transparency in the mining sector. We provided a written response in June 2019 to a request from the Church of England Pensions Board and the Swedish Council on Ethics for the AP Funds to several listed mining companies.
This disclosure provides Gold Fields’ approach to tailings, communications, and risk management; a description of updates to our approach following recent disasters; and an inventory of tailings dam facilities for our operating sites, joint ventures, subsidiaries, and legacy sites as of July 1, 2019.
