Beyond Borders - April 2010

Barrick Gold Corporation is conducting one of the most ambitious environmental clean-up efforts in recent mining history at the site of the new Pueblo Viejo project in the Dominican Republic. The estimated $3 billion Pueblo Viejo project is located on the site of a former mining operation which closed down over a decade earlier, leaving behind a legacy of extensive pollution and contamination. The story of how Barrick's experts are managing the complex clean-up and remediation effort, working with the Government of the Dominican Republic, is detailed in the latest edition of Beyond Borders, a Barrick Gold Report on Responsible Mining.

The new 32-page edition, entitled "Modern Mining: Protecting the Environment," showcases the strict international environmental guidelines and performance standards that apply at the company's 26 operating mines and identifies emerging industry standards and best practices in such areas as climate change, water conservation and biodiversity.
