As part of Barrick’s ongoing evolution to generate wealth for our owners, our people, and the countries and communities with which we partner, the Company is digitally transforming its operations, integrating technology into everything we do.
This initiative not only encompasses our mines, it extends to our host community partners, underscoring our commitment to generate sustainable benefits and mutual prosperity everywhere we operate. In Nevada, where our digital transformation is being rolled out initially, we have partnered with Cisco and Great Basin College to bring digital and information technology skills development courses, free of charge, to the local community.
In this interview with Las Vegas radio host Chuck Baker, Barrick’s Tim Buchanan talks at length about the partnership. Buchanan, Director of Corporate Social Responsibility at Barrick, also talks about Barrick’s operations in Nevada, the Company’s work with the local community, and why mining is an attractive field for a twenty-first century world.
