'Pinktober' raises $8,000


November 22, 2017

During the month of October, Barrick mine sites and offices in the US participated in the company's Pinktober Breast Cancer Awareness initiative benefitting community healthcare providers.

Barrick donated $5 for each employee dressed in pink on the designated Pinktober days of October 10 and October 26. Funds raised at Barrick's Golden Sunlight mine were also matched by development partner, RedPath Mining.

"It was another successful Pinktober at Barrick," Maria Anderson, Community Relations Specialist. "We want to thank all of our employees for helping to raise more than $8,000 for local community health partners."

More than 1,500 US–based Barrick employees wore pink on each of the designated Pinktober days. Recipient organizations included the Elko Cancer Network and Nevada Health Centers Mammovan in Nevada and the St. James Healthcare Foundation in Butte, Montana.

Funds raised by Golden Sunlight employees totaled $750 and were matched by Redpath Mining for a total donation in the amount of $1,500 benefiting the St. James Healthcare Foundation.
