This report presents the findings of the Yanacocha Independent Fact Finding Mission conducted between August 2015 and March 2016. Commissioned by Newmont and undertaken under the auspices of RESOLVE, the objective of the Mission was to examine a land dispute between the Chaupe family and Minera Yanacocha, the operators of a planned multi-billion dollar gold mining project called Conga in Peru. The report uses documentary analysis, key informant interviews and discussion with a range of stakeholders to answer key questions related to the land acquisition process, allegations of human rights violations and Minera Yanacocha's conformance to Newmont's own policies and international standards.
