SOCIO-ECONOMIC CONTRIBUTIONS IGO’s socio-economic contributions can be measured by the dividends we pay, the salaries and other employment benefits we provide to our staff, the money we spend on contractors and consultants, the money we pay in taxes and royalties and payments made through our Corporate Giving activities. In FY18, IGO spent a total of $252,385 on community development and related projects and activities (Corporate Giving), which equates to 0.06% of our FY17 revenue. IGO has a land access agreement with the Ngadju people; the native title holders of the land on which the Nova Operation is located. In compliance with this agreement, a total of $3.04 million has now been paid to Ngadju (Figure 37). Tropicana’s current budget for community donations/support programs in 2017 was $10,000 excluding the $60,000 cost of cross-cultural awareness programs. In general, mining tenement holders must pay royalties in respect of the minerals and metals they extract. Royalties are payable in arrears as they are calculated on the basis of the quantity of minerals recovered in a given year. Royalties payable over the life of a tenement will vary depending on the rate of production. Royalty rates are set by state and territory regulatory bodies for each mineral or metal type. IGO’s royalty payments form a part of the Western Australian Government’s general revenue to fund services such as law enforcement, education, health, roads and community development programs. The Western Australian Government received royalty revenue from it's mineral and petroleum producers totaling $6.06 billion in 2017, an increase of 28% on 2016. Although iron ore was the largest contributor, the gold sector was the second largest contributor, with royalty receipts totaling $267 million for FY17, an increase of over 5% for the period. Other major contributors included base metals ($67 million, 32% higher than FY16) and nickel ($51 million, 8% higher than FY16) ( Us-Careers/Latest-Statistics- Release-4081.aspx).
