Gold Fields in Peru builds modern el Tingo community centre
Tuesday, 23 October 2018
In line with our commitment to sharing value, our team in Peru built and equipped a community centre, valued at 1.03 million soles (US$310,000), for the El Tingo Community near our Cerro Corona mine.
The modern construction has three levels with facilities ranging from a multi-purpose room and warehouse to industrial kitchen.
At the handover ceremony, Rolando Gallardo, President of the El Tingo community, said: ‘My sincere thanks to Gold Fields for constructing the centre. The company is characterised by generating development in communities in its area of â€‹â€‹influence, showing that mining and communities can work together.‘
Process Manager at Gold Fields, Pedro Paucar, added: ‘Good relationships make it possible to execute projects that impact and contribute to the future of communities. It has been shown that livestock, agriculture and mining can co-exist successfully.‘
