The ongoing achievements of PanAust significantly contribute to the overall benefit of the GDRH group. Our continuing success is borne from our work together from all across the organisation, working as one family, and is reinforced by our shared commitment, resilience, and unwavering dedication to excellence that continues to make PanAust a leader in the sector. PanAust is rightfully recognised and respected as a responsible precious and base metals producer and as the benchmark for the industry across the region.

We stand at the threshold of exciting times, and I want to share my enthusiasm for the journey ahead. I believe our values are at the core of what we do and will help shape our future together.

Focus: At PanAust, focus is our compass. We direct our energies toward sustainable growth, safety, and responsible mining practices. Our unwavering focus on safety ensures that every workplace incident is preventable, aligning with our Zero Harm philosophy. Together, we will continue to prioritise safety, ensuring the well-being of our people and the communities we serve.

Actions: Words alone cannot shape our future. It is our actions that define us. As we embark on this new chapter, let us reaffirm our commitment to responsible business practices. Our actions will speak louder than any promise. We will continue to demonstrate our dedication to environmental stewardship and socio-economic development for communities located around our existing and potential operational sites.

Innovation: Innovation is the heartbeat of progress. We embrace cutting-edge technologies, explore novel approaches, and adapt to changing landscapes. Our collaborative efforts with governments, local communities and stakeholders enable us to balance global resource demand while minimising our environmental footprint.

Technology: The mining industry is evolving, and technology is our ally. From advanced exploration techniques to efficient extraction methods, we leverage technology to enhance productivity and minimise our environmental impact. Our investments in research and development, and how we approach challenges using technological advances will continue to propel us towards a sustainable future.

Human-Oriented: For each and every achievement we make, we know these could not be possible without our people. Our multicultural workforce is our greatest asset. We celebrate diversity, harnessing it for our collective success. As we look ahead, let us remain human-oriented, fostering an inclusive workplace where everyone has the opportunity to grow, develop and thrive.

I extend my gratitude to all members of the PanAust family – our employees, host communities and our key stakeholders. Your contributions have shaped our legacy, and together, we will continue to build a brighter future. With optimism and confidence, let us embrace the opportunities that lie ahead.

Lv Yongzhong

Chairman, GDRH
