Our Countries of Operation

Randgold is an Africa focused gold mining and exploration business established in 1995 with the aim of delivering long term value for all stakeholders. Most of our countries of operation have significant social and economic challenges, often because they are emerging from years of political instability and financial stagnation.


A core part of Randgold’s philosophy is that by doing business in a responsible manner we can catalyse economic growth and sustainable development in our host countries, and encourage other world-class companies to invest there.


Here we provide some contextual background to our host countries, and also show our on-going and evolving efforts to map how our operations, partnerships and sustainability efforts, contribute to the achievement of the United Nations’ SDGs1 .
