Newmont Waihi Gold continues to explore for gold and is conducting a series of near-mine and regional exploration programmes.

April 2012 anotherview. The ‘F-word’… Actually two ‘F-words’: facts, and frogs. Newmont Waihi Gold is exploring for gold on the Coromandel Peninsula. We think it’s important that you understand what we are doing and how we do it. This month we publish the facts about exploration – and frogs.
