Responsible Mining

"At K92 Mining, we have a strong focus on the prosperity and development of Papua New Guinea and local communities through socially responsible mining. We believe this is achieved through safe and environmentally responsible mining; strong community engagement; investing in PNG’s future through education and training; providing infrastructure and services development, and; providing employment and economic opportunities for Papua New Guineans.

We are very proud that over 95% of our employees are PNG nationals, of which a majority are from our local landowners. Our workforce also has one of the best safety records in all of Australasia, which we believe is a testament to the dedication and strong work culture of our employees. In 2020, we completed the commissioning of our Stage 2 Plant Expansion, creating further employment opportunities while also progressing economic studies for a Stage 3 Expansion. We have also increased our investment in unlocking the resource potential of PNG for future generations through exploration."

- CEO and Director, John Lewins
