Our charters

Our Commitment to Gold Fields’ Investors…

To build a quality portfolio of productive mines and assets under exploration and development

The quality of our asset portfolio is key to our success. What is most important, however, is our commitment to generate cash on a sustainable basis, in order for us to meet our commitments to all of our stakeholders

To provide superior returns

In order to be an appealing long-term investment we will deliver leverage to the gold price and attractive returns relative to our peers and the gold price

To deliver on our commitments

We seek to be judged on what we do rather than what we say. We will be clear and transparent on our strategy and the performance of our assets, and focus on achievements rather than on what we intend to do. To protect our credibility and integrity we will only make commitments that we can achieve
