St Barbara maintains an excellent relationship, built over many years, with the local community.

St Barbara operates in a range of socially diverse environments in Australia, Papua New Guinea and Canada.

We believe that mining can be a positive force for social and economic development for local communities. We strive to conduct our activities in a socially responsible manner and demonstrate respect for St Barbara’s host societies. Through engagement, we aim to maximise the positive impact of St Barbara’s operations for local communities and balance the interests of competing stakeholders.

The support we provide to the communities in which we operate and the programs we partner with are chosen to ensure long term sustainable and mutual benefit.
