Part 3: GHG Emissions in Gold Mining Globally

Published on June 17th, 2020

Principal Geologist, Sam Ulrich takes a look at the Greenhouse Gas Emissions in gold mining globally in Part 3 of CSA Global’s GHG Series.

We examine the primary reasons for differences across countries GHG emissions and why South American gold mines have lower GHG emissions intensity than any other country.

View this latest audio presentation as we explore the financial, investment, and value implications of carbon risk from the view that higher GHG emissions intensity means a higher carbon risk and vice versa.
