The reputation of the large Kibali gold mine, run by Barrick Gold in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), is being significantly enhanced by its far-reaching contribution to the development and upkeep of key infrastructure, the building of a vibrant local socio-economy, protection of the environment, restoration of game in national parks, and even the revitalisation of an attention-catching coffee cultivation opportunity. Three hydropower stations have put Kibali in the green energy drive lead, with more than 80% of the mine’s power provided by renewable energy sources, which will be further increased by an upcoming solar power plant. Generated is 40.16 MW of power at an average cost of 0.100 $/kWh.
