Chen Yumin delivered a keynote speech entitled Expediting Kinetic Energy Transition, Deepening Pragmatic Cooperation and Building a New Pattern in Global Gold Industry Development, which attracted widespread attention. He pointed out that apparent fluctuation, improved profitability and scarce production are key themes of the current global gold industry development. At present, the primary problem faced by global gold enterprises will no longer be to focus on repairing balance sheets, but to accelerate the transformation and upgrading of enterprises and further enhance their comprehensive development capabilities to form continuous productivity improvement, cost advantages and operational advantages. He thought that the kinetic energy transition characterized by digital intelligence and green ecology will be an inevitable trend in the future development of the gold industry. SD-Gold has established the only one world-class gold production base in China by relying on abundant resource reserves, advanced safety technology and green ecological concept, and has officially launched the “World-class Model Mine” construction project with the Sanshandao Gold Mine as a pilot to make a series of demonstration effects on the whole gold industry in building intelligent mines, intrinsically safe mines, green ecological mines, deep well mines, humane mines, etc., which is of great significance to the transformation and upgrading of the industry and guiding the future development of the mining industry.
Chen Yumin emphasized that deepening global gold industry cooperation is the inevitable way to promote the steady and sustainable development of the gold industry. In international cooperation, SD-Gold not only pays attention to whether the assets are high-quality and potential, but also pays more attention to cultural similarity and mutual trust of the two sides, and is actively committed to creating an efficient and transparent cooperation model. At present, SD-Gold is seeking new assets based on large-scale gold mines, copper mines and lead and zinc mines in production in Asia, North and South Americas, Africa and other regions. He said that SD-Gold will actively adapt to the tide of the times, further accelerate the building of “the world-class model mines”, comprehensively build ecological mining, speed up the transition between new and old kinetic energies, deepen communications and cooperation in all fields and regions of the global mining, and strive to create a new pattern in global gold industry development.
