At Goldcorp, our goals are to deliver long-term value and superior returns to shareholders while operating safely and responsibly. There are several elements to our strategy:
Disciplined Portfolio Management
Our continued focus on high-quality gold assets and a disciplined acquisition strategy has helped position Goldcorp for tremendous growth.
Creating Sustainable Value
We remain committed to responsible stewardship, so our business investments are catalysts for positive, sustainable development everywhere we do business.
Our track record of growing reserves, ability to fund growth internally and active dividend policy have delivered superior shareholders returns.
We’ve consistently grown gold production with an eye on managing costs that have accelerating cash flow and earnings for our shareholders. And our employees love the opportunities provided in a dynamic environment that encourages innovation.
In a few short years, we have grown to take our place amongst the world’s largest gold producers. Gold production is expected to increase over 20% in 2015.
In 2014, we produced 2.87 million ounces of gold at an all-in sustaining cost of approximately $949 per ounce. These costs are expected to decrease with our new, low-cost mines. For 2015, the all-in sustaining costs are expected to be between $875 and $950 per gold ounce.
Low Political Risk
Our asset portfolio is located in politically stable, low-risk jurisdictions in the Americas. We conduct business in a socially and environmentally responsible manner, and we share the benefits of our operations with local communities and authorities to ensure that we are welcomed wherever we operate.
Responsible Mining Practices
In every country, in every community, at every operation in which Goldcorp operates, we have improved consistency and effectiveness, while always remaining sensitive to the unique needs of each social, economic and cultural environment.
Peer-Leading Balance Sheet
Our balance sheet is among the strongest in the sector: we ended 2014 with cash and cash equivalents of approximately $0.54 billion, an undrawn credit facility of $1.16 billion.
