About the Company

Newcrest Mining (ASX: NCM) is Australia’s largest and most liquid Gold and Copper producer. The company owns and operates a portfolio of predominantly low cost, long life mines and has a strong pipeline of brownfield and greenfield exploration projects. Reserve and resource base is strong, with gold reserves representing more than 25 years of production at current rates. Newcrest's asset portfolio includes operating mines that use a variety of efficient mining methods for large ore bodies, together with selective underground mining methods to optimise high-grade deposits. The mines include: Cadia Valley in New South Wales, Telfer in Western Australia, Gosowong in Indonesia, Lihir in the PNG and Bonikro in the Cote d'Ivoire, Africa.

Our View

Optimising the performance of each of the mining assets represents the core strategic aim of the management team, with a stated aim of debottlenecking workflow to improve operating efficiency and maximise production at the lowest operating cost. The sale of non-core assets and in particular the Hidden Valley mine in the PNG has enabled the company to refocus its executive team on high grade assets to generate improved operating performance and invest in new technologies to improve productivity.



Gold is a scarce resource with only 161,000 tons ever mined, enough to fill two Olympic size swimming pools. This scarcity makes it a store of value and explains why investors seek it in times of financial or geo political turmoil. Gold is a natural hedge against the swings in equity values, in a time of falling share prices Gold prices rise. Holding a Gold stock in your portfolio effectively lowers your combined investment risk and enables you to generate more consistent lower risk return. Gold also rises in a period of inflation, after a decade of central bank quantitative easing we expect there will now be a period of rising prices and this will result in a higher Gold prices.
