GHG Series (Part 4 of 5): Impact of a Hypothetical Carbon Price on Gold Mining

Published on July 29th, 2021

Principal Geologist, Sam Ulrich presents Greenhouse Gas Series (Part 4 of 5): Impact of a hypothetical carbon price on gold mining.

This series of short presentations investigates greenhouse gas emissions in gold mining globally, inclusive of the GHG emissions data from 194 gold mines across 35 countries.

View this latest audio presentation as we outline the winners and losers impacted by the change in those countries cost-competitive advantage and the importance for gold miners to reduce their GHG emissions intensity, therefore, decreasing the potential impact a carbon price could have on their operations.
