A key challenge for mining companies interested in collecting useful social data is identifying what needs to be known. International and corporate policies relating to social performance in mining are not specific or granular enough to account for the circumstances industry professionals are engaging with. Social performance professionals commonly face the problem of defining:

  • what constitutes social data in mining
  • what is required to collect that data
  • how it should be used in operational-level decision-making.

An earlier draft of this paper was produced through support and engagement with Newmont Goldcorp.
