In 2017, Nordgold turns 10. It’s come a long way in that time. Created as a division within a vertically integrated steel and steel-related mining company to the internationally diversified gold producer it is today. Throughout a challenging economic backdrop, the company has developed successfully under the stewardship of CEO Nikolai Zelenski.
It has been an impressive decade for our company — having established Nordgold from scratch in 2007, then a part of Severstal, we have successfully developed an independent, international, million-ounce gold miner. 10 years ago, working with a handful of people to assess and analyse a range of different minerals, we saw the potential for growth and returns from a focused gold business.
From the handful of people who started this business, to the thousands of people that work for it now, every single one has made an invaluable contribution to its success in the past, present and, most importantly, well into the next 10 years and beyond.
I would like to thank each and every one of them. To go from nothing to a stable, sustainable and expanding million-ounce gold producer is a great result that we all should be proud of. Nikolai ZelenskiChief Executive Officer of Nordgold
