Since 2012, the Martabe Gold Mine has had a well–deserved reputation as an industry leader in terms of safety, sustainability, and production processes. With our people at the heart of our business, we use innovative practices and the latest technologies to discover new resources and to mine, process, move and market our future–enabling products to our customers safely and sustainably. We work collaboratively with our stakeholders to enhance our contribution to sustainable development in North Sumatra and across Indonesia. And more importantly, we want our people and our communities to grow as we grow. We believe that only together we can build a sustainable future now, and tomorrow.

The Martabe Gold Mine is located close to communities, waterways, plantations and forests. Minimising environmental impacts resulting from the project is a key requirement of sustainable development and essential for maintaining the Company’s social licence to operate.
