Goldcorp, the world’s biggest gold producer by market value, will increasingly have to look for large-scale assets outside the Americas as these become ever harder to find, the miner’s incoming chief executive said on Monday. David Garofalo, who will become CEO after the company’s annual meeting in April, said assets in countries in Europe and Africa could possibly meet Goldcorp’s criteria, which includes low political risk and the existence of a mining code.
