B2Gold Namibia is a Canadian based gold mining company with 10% Namibian shareholding. The Otjikoto Project received its mining license in 2013 and the first gold pour was on 3 October 2014. The mine is in full production with the mine life of twelve and half years.
The construction was completed on schedule and on budget in less than two years. Our construction team is currently building a new mine in Mali. Over 40 Namibians, which were part of that team have moved to Mali as part of B2Gold’s expatriate team.
B2 Gold’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program goals are to promote responsible mining and prepare communities for when the mine closes. B2Gold supports sustainable programs/projects that will have long term impacts in its four focus sectors: Education, Environmental Conservation, Livelihoods and Health.
