Pueblo Viejo


Pueblo Viejo is located in the Dominican Republic, approximately 100 kilometers northwest of the capital city of Santo Domingo, and is operated by the Pueblo Viejo Dominicana Corporation — a joint venture between Barrick (60%) and Newmont (40%). Construction of the project started in 2008, and first production occurred in 2012.


Pueblo Viejo Mine Life Extension and Plant Expansion Project

Converting 9 million ounces of measured and indicated resources to proven and probable reserves, and extending the mine’s life to 2040 and beyond.

Our commitment to responsible mining and transparent communication

The letter below serves as Barrick’s response to accusations made by Earthworks, Global Justice Clinic and MiningWatch Canada in respect of the proposed expansion of the Pueblo Viejo mine in the Dominican Republic. Their deprecation is unfounded and we are making this letter public in order to provide the facts.

Barrick prides itself on being a good neighbour and the intended expansion of the Pueblo Viejo operation would increase the life of the mine for approximately 20 years and with it jobs, state revenues and exports, local business support and community infrastructure, providing long term value for all stakeholders.

The attachments referred to in Barrick’s response have been sent to Earthworks, Global Justice Clinic and MiningWatch Canada. Due to their size, the attachments are not included here, however, can be made available on request.
