Introduction to the Report
Welcome to the Newmont Asia Pacific (APAC) sustainability report
for Australia and New Zealand. This report acts as a scorecard of
our achievements and challenges in meeting our commitment to
the community, government and our shareholders to demonstrate
leadership in environmental stewardship and social responsibility.
Newmont is a member of the Minerals Council of Australia and a founding
signatory to the principles of Enduring Value - the Australian Minerals
industry framework for Sustainable Development.
The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI, globalreporting.org) G3 guidelines
were used as a framework in the preparation of this report to provide
effective and transparent engagement with our stakeholders.
This report reflects Newmont’s programs and performance for its Australian
and New Zealand operations, which are overseen at the regional level by
Newmont’s Asia Pacific Regional Management Team, in Perth, Australia.
Newmont also publishes a corporate sustainability report in May of each
year, which can be found at www.newmont.com.
This report focuses on our Tanami Operations in the Northern Territory,
the Jundee Operation, near Wiluna in Western Australia, and Waihi Gold
in New Zealand, as well as our Western Australian joint venture projects,
Kalgoorlie Consolidated Gold Mine (KCGM), and the Boddington Gold
Mine Expansion Project.
Individual reports for each of our Australian operations have been
combined this year to create the first Newmont APAC sustainability
report for our Australian and New Zealand Operations.
NB: Activities in this report relate to the period 1 January 2008 to 31 December 2008.
Where figures published in this report fluctuate throughout the year, the figure provided
is accurate as at 31 December 2008.

Our Approach to Sustainability
At Newmont we recognise that our success is inextricably linked
to our ability to ensure the health and safety of our employees,
and to develop, operate and close mines in a manner which
provides long-term social, environmental and economic benefit
to the communities in which we operate.
This is achieved by integrating sustainable development principles
into the mine life cycle.
We endeavour to demonstrate leadership in safety, environmental
stewardship and social responsibility by maintaining high standards
for protecting human health and the environment, and working
in cooperation with local communities and governments.
We work closely with government, industry and the community
to provide business and employment opportunities, and support
education, training and health programs.
We are also working with global stakeholders to address
international challenges such as climate change, water usage
and waste disposal.
Newmont is a signatory to a number of sustainability initiatives
including the Australian Minerals Industry framework for Sustainable
Development, Enduring Value, the International Cyanide Management
Code, and the Energy Efficiency Opportunities Program. In 2008
Newmont made significant progress to secure ISO 14001 and
OHSAS 18001 certification for its APAC operations.

Newmont’s first commitment is to the health and wellbeing
of our workforce. We measure our success as a company
and an industry leader by the impact we have on the lives
of our employees, their families and the communities who
surround our operations.
We are pleased to report that no one was seriously injured
at our operations in Australia or New Zealand during 2008.
There was also an overall reduction in the severity rate of Lost
Time Injuries (LTI) with significant achievements including five
million LTI-free man hours at the Boddington Gold Mine
Expansion Project and three million hours LTI-free at KCGM.
These results continue the trend of the last few years. However,
the rate of improvement has begun to plateau and we saw a
slight increase in LTIs at Jundee and Tanami during the year.
The focus during 2008 was to align Corporate and Regional
Strategic Plans with site Operational Health, Safety and Loss
Prevention plans. The objective is to improve the effectiveness
of controls for areas of significant risk identified in audits and
through accident/incident data.

Newmont’s Australian and New Zealand operations are uniquely
located in a mix of environmentally and socially sensitive areas.
Our management systems form the basis of how we minimise
and mitigate impacts to those sensitive areas.
The APAC IMS requires internal auditing of our systems to ensure
continuous improvement. Accordingly, in 2008 we conducted a
gap analysis of these systems at Boddington, Tanami and Jundee
to ensure they are in-line with our global Community and External
Relations (CER) Standards and key APAC IMS standards.
The gaps identified will be progressively actioned in 2009.
One of the key requirements of the global standards is for all
our operations to conduct a Social Impact Assessment (SIA).
They are required to review these assessments every three
years to ensure they are up-to-date and relevant to the changing
mine life cycle.
An SIA has been completed at each of our Australian and
New Zealand Operations. The Boddington and Tanami SIAs
were updated in 2008. The Waihi and Jundee SIAs will be
updated in 2009. Findings from the SIAs are used to inform
future community relations aspects of the operations’ strategic
and annual plans.
