Using Relationship Data to Improve Business Practices: Measuring Company-Community Relationships at a South African Mine (Shift, 2021)

This is a case study about how Gold Fields has assessed its relationship with local communities around the South Deep Gold Mine in the West Rand, South Africa.

Gold Fields used the ICMM’s toolkit, “Understanding Company-Community Relations Toolkit” (click here) to conduct multiple assessments. The case study summarises processes that Gold Fields took to assess its relationship with local communities, which can be of help to other companies working in challenging environments.
