"Since we restructured our business during the first half of 2016 to drive a culture of accountability and sound operating principles, we have delivered consistent, predictable and low-cost gold production," said David Garofalo, President and Chief Executive Officer of Goldcorp. "We are well underway to deliver on our 5-year plan of growing gold production and gold reserves by 20% and reducing AISC by 20% by 2021. With the most robust growth pipeline among global senior gold companies, we are making an initial investment of $100 million in our long-term portfolio 'Beyond 20/20'. Together with an enhanced exploration budget of $125 million, the objective of Beyond 20/20 is to maximize the net asset value of our existing mines and projects by continuing to grow low-cost gold production from our growing gold reserves."
