Corporate Governance

Good corporate governance is simply good for business. At Bathurst we believe in accountability, transparency and integrity.

Our Board of Directors is responsible for corporate governance. It’s their job to guide and monitor our business affairs and activities on behalf of our shareholders – to whom they are accountable.

Our Corporate Governance Statement has been written with direct reference to the ASX’s Corporate Governance Principles and Recommendations. You can read our corporate governance practices in more detail below. These were implemented following our IPO in January 2008.

 

ASX Corporate Governance principles and recommendations

The Board and management are committed to ensuring that Bathurst Resources Limited maintains the best corporate governance structures and ethical practices. The Board regularly reviews these in line with the 3rd Edition of the ASX Corporate Governance Council's Corporate Governance Principles and Recommendations and follows these where applicable after considering the company’s size and the resources it has available. As the company’s activities develop in size, nature and scope, the size of the board and the implementation of any additional formal corporate governance committees will be given further consideration.

The Board and management have established a range of policies, practices and arrangements that reflect the recommendations.

Those policies, practices and arrangements are reviewed regularly. Some of those arrangements are set out below:

Code of Conduct Remuneration and Nomination Committee Charter
Audit and Risk Committee Charter Diversity Policy
Share Trading Policy Continuous Disclosure Policy
Board Charter Shareholder Communication Policy
Policy on Independence of Directors Corporate Governance Statement
Whistle Blower Policy Health, Safety, Environment and Community Committee Charter
Constitution  Emissions Trading Scheme Policy
