Barrick Gold response
With respect to the fairness of individual remedies provided under the Remediation Framework, we note that the independent review of the operation of the Porgera Remediation Framework, conducted by Enodo Rights in 2015, concluded that the remedies provided were appropriate, equitable and generous (the full assessment is available here). Enodo also noted that the compensation received was of far higher value than international precedent would suggest, and under human rights law, was considered to be complete.
Barrick and the Porgera Joint Venture 1 have previously responded to the findings and recommendations of the Enodo Rights report (available here). Since then, Barrick is advised that the Porgera Joint Venture has implemented a number of key reforms relevant to the report findings.
