Our Purpose & Values

Our Purpose

During 2023, Sandfire Group’s shared purpose has been reviewed. Together we have worked on a new definition of what our purpose is, reflecting who we are as a company and what we want to achieve.

This new purpose reflects Sandfire’s transition to a major global copper producer and provides a clear and motivating direction for our people across all our mining operations. Moreover, this purpose is aligned with a renewed company strategy for achieving a common goal.

Here is our new purpose:
“We mine copper sustainably to energise the future”
