MHWeek Sponsor – Barrick Gold
The Barrick Gold Corporation is a company dedicated to responsible mining.
Founded in 1983 by Peter Munk, a Canadian entrepreneur and philanthropist, Barrick aims to, quote, “cultivate a high-performance culture defined by the following principles: a deep commitment to partnership, consistent execution, operational excellence, disciplined capital allocation, and continual self-improvement.” Over 75% of its gold production comes from the Americas, although other mining operations have been established in countries like Australia, Saudi Arabia, Zambia, and Papua New Guinea.
In addition to its work in developing the mining sector, Barrick is dedicated to giving back to the community, supporting Canadian non-profit organizations and charitable endeavours through its Heart of Gold Fund. Mining is a dangerous profession, and so Barrick is dedicated to promoting health and safety within the industry. This dedication is extended to supporting mental health initiatives. We have entered an exciting new partnership with Barrick Gold, giving us the opportunity to improve the quality of life of people in need of mental health.
