Newmont Mining Corporation is a leading global gold producer with significant assets in Nevada, Peru, Australia, Ghana, and Suriname.

Newmont’s Africa Operations include two gold mining sites in Ghana: the Ahafo Mine in the Brong-Ahafo region and the Akyem Mine in the Eastern region.

Newmont Africa is also engaged in early-stage exploration programs in African countries such as Ethiopia and Morocco.

Our Africa operations employ approximately 5,900 employees and contractors, with the majority based at the Ahafo Mine. We offer a unique blend of career opportunities with all the benefits you would expect from a global company. Combined with our growth prospects, Newmont is an excellent place to work.

Our Akyem and Ahafo mines have made significant investments in sustainable community development in our host communities. This includes establishing Development Funds at our Akyem and Ahafo sites, with each mine contributing US$1 per ounce of gold sold and 1% of net pre-tax annual profit into its community development fund.

As the only gold company listed in the S&P 500 index, Newmont became the first gold company to be selected for the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index in 2007. The exceptional performance of Newmont’s Africa operations reflects our high standards in environmental management, workforce health and safety, and creating value and opportunities for our employees, host communities, and Newmont’s shareholders.
