B2Gold is a low-cost international senior gold producer headquartered in Vancouver, Canada. Founded in 2007, today, B2Gold has operating gold mines in Mali, Namibia and the Philippines, a mine under construction in northern Canada and numerous development and exploration projects in various countries including Mali, Colombia and Finland. Our strategy is to continue maximizing profitable production from our mines, advancing our pipeline of development and exploration projects, evaluating new exploration, development and production opportunities and continuing to pay an industry leading dividend yield.
One of the rewarding aspects of the mining industry is the positive socio-economic impact that developing new mines can have on the local populations in what are often remote and/or impoverished areas of the world. At B2Gold, we continue to recognize that responsible environmental stewardship and social responsibility are integral components of business in today’s world. We have recognized as corporate priorities, environmental management and the support of local communities, and we integrate environmental and social factors in the decision-making process for the Company and its subsidiaries. As we continue to develop and build on our existing exploration assets and pursue additional opportunities around the world, we will remain committed to maintaining the high standards of environmental stewardship and social responsibility that we have established.
