Goldcorp’s mission is to sustainably produce three to four million ounces of gold annually from six to eight large-scale districts. We have a growth plan to reach this objective by 2021 that includes increasing our production, growing our reserves and reducing our all-in sustaining costs. At the same time, we’re leading the industry in our approach to innovation and responsibility at every stage of the mining cycle.

Our Approach

Focus on large-scale districts. We’re focusing on large-scale districts in areas with low political risk and high exploration potential. This model allows us to take advantage of existing infrastructure, creating economies of scale that will reduce our cost structure and improve our global competitiveness.

Give autonomy to the people who manage our operations. Every mine manager has full responsibility for their own operations, including growing reserves, looking for expansion opportunities, engaging with local communities and advancing sustainability initiatives. In effect, they are running local businesses and building on the positive relationships they have created in their communities.

Build sustainable socio-economic ecosystems. We operate in environmentally responsible ways, hire locally, and support local communities with the building blocks for creating and sustaining vibrant and engaged communities: infrastructure, education and more. Taking this approach means people gain skills and the local economy grows, which is essential to our ability to maintain strong relationships and to be accepted into new communities.

Foster a spirit of innovation and entrepreneurship. We innovate at every stage of the mine lifecycle to make our operations more efficient, reduce our impact on the environment and identify exploration targets more effectively.
