“Clearly articulating our dividend policy increases transparency and underscores Nordgold’s ambition to create shareholder value. The significant payout ratio indicates the Board’s comfort with the underlying performance of the Company and shows Nordgold’s commitment to returning cash flow to our shareholders through superior sustainable dividends.” Michael NossalNordgold’s Chairman
