Colonel William Boyce Thompson founded the Newmont Company in 1916 as a holding company for private acquisitions in oil and gas, mining and minerals enterprises. Thompson named the company “Newmont” because, as one biographer described it, “he grew up in Montana and made his money in New York.”
Publicly traded on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) since 1940, Newmont Goldcorp has spent about century primarily in the natural resources industry, mining gold, copper, silver, lead, zinc, lithium, uranium, coal, nickel and aggregates, and even developing oil and gas. Today, Newmont Goldcorp is the world’s leading gold company as measured by assets, prospects and people. Newmont Goldcorp has actively operating mines in nine countries across the globe.

City of Timmins
Located in Northeastern Ontario in one of the richest mineral producing areas in the Western Hemisphere, the City of Timmins, nestled along the Mattagami River, is the second largest community in Canada and a destination of choice for many in search of a unique vacation experience.
Our municipality owes its existence to the initiative and efforts of prospectors by the names of Harry Preston, Sandy McIntyre and Benny Hollinger, who in the early 1900's discovered gold. Financiers Noah and Henry Timmins were responsible for the development of the Hollinger Mine and, thus, the name Timmins came to the forefront and has been our proud designation ever since.
