Newmont's response

The Danwatch reports are critiques of the socioeconomic impacts of mining in Ghana. Although very general and overall quite superficial, the report requires careful analysis and a detailed response...Newmont cannot of course respond to what other companies have allegedly done, but has seen no evidence of widespread practices as alleged by Danwatch. Speaking for itself, Newmont can affirm that those practices are prohibited by its own standards, by its Investment Agreement with Ghana and in most cases by applicable law.
