Operational Excellence


Sustainability is a long-term view that doesn’t allow for shortcuts. To be the best we have to do the right thing. Time and time again. Equally importantly, we need to ensure that those we do business with share a similar philosophy.

Health and Safety

Safety is the cornerstone upon which our company is built. We are nothing without our people so if we cannot mine safely we will not mine at all. We are committed to a Zero Incident workforce and expect our people to play their part in making this a reality.


Gold Fields Australia invests in community development projects around the St Ives and Agnew mines through the Gold Fields Australia Foundation. We have forged proactive relationships with key stakeholders in their local communities, including Native Title claimant groups, pastoralists, key business partners and non-government organisations. Our Australian operations are highly focused on the rights of Indigenous people.


Gold Fields Australia is dedicated to the responsible use of natural resources and acting responsibly in all areas of environmental management. We are committed to ensuring that development and expansion of the business is conducted in such a way to minimise environmental and stakeholder impacts.

We promote environmental responsibility to all our employees and stakeholders as well as throughout our supply chain through a variety of awareness programs, and comprehensive and innovative environmental field programs.


Gold Fields Australia’s policy is to employ local labour and contractors wherever possible. We believe that our responsibility towards our employees begins at the workplace and extends to the means necessary to enjoy a well-balanced, healthy lifestyle.
