The World Gold Council, whose members

ls its “Exposure Draft” of the Conflict
-Free Gold Standard. The objective of the Standard is tocreate absolute trust that the gold produced under its guidelines neither fuels armed conflict, nor fundsarmed groups, nor contributes to human rights abuses associated with these conflicts.The Standard has been developed in close collaboration with World Gold Council members, who have
approved and agreed this “Exposure
Draft
and are committed to implementing the final Standard onceavailable. This reinforces our M
embers’ commitment to the
development of a truly sustainable goldmining industry.The World Gold Council received input from a wide range of stakeholders including: NGOs,Governments, investors, media and academics, following the publication of a first draft in June 2011.
The “Exposure Draft”, issued today, allows for further comment from interested parties before the
finalversion is published. Consequently, we are requesting further input from interested parties by 30
th
June2012.Implementation of the standard must be capable of being audited by external assurance providers andthe World Gold Council and its Members will continue to work to ensure that it complements andintegrates with other industry frameworks.The Standard is underpinned by a declaration of principles which include commitments to certainbehaviours such as respecting human rights and ensuring payments are not made, directly or indirectly,to illegal armed groups.Ian Telfer, Chairman of the World Gold Council and Goldcorp commented,
Responsible gold mining isan important contributor to both economic growth and social development in gold-producing countries.We believe that, where it is responsibly undertaken, gold mining and its related activities can play acrucial role in achieving sustainable development and alleviating poverty in developing countries as wellas contributing to sustained economic growth in developed countries.
 Pierre Lassonde, Chairman of Franco-Nevada Corporation and the World Gold Council Board Memberresponsible for leading the development of the Standard, continued,
“I’ve been proud to
lead thedevelopment of the Conflict-Free Gold Standard. The supply chain for gold is highly complex, and thisStandard represents a major step forward towards eradicating gold that fuels conflict from the legitimatesupply chain. It is essential that we combat any misuse of gold. This has been the driving force of thisStandard which will apply to conflict-affected areas globally. Our Members are committed toimplementing the Standard, following the formalisation of the Exposure Draft, throughout theirbusinesses
