Happy Birthday, Pogo!
Ten years goes by in an instant – ask any parent or any Pogo employee! With an original mine life of only 10 years and three million ounces, Pogo continues to break records and raise the bar. Thanks to our 320 employees, hundreds of contractors and suppliers and numerous non-profit partners, Sumitomo Metal Mining Pogo, LLC leads in safety, environmental performance, community investment and gold production.


Our mine boasts five known deposits: Liese Zone, North Zone, East Deep, South Pogo and 4021. Extensive exploration efforts are underway to identify additional ore reserves. The magnitude of these deposits is not clearly defined, creating the potential for a golden future for the Pogo family.
