The Goro nickel operation has been plagued by capital cost over runs, start up delays and operations issues since commencing production in 2011. Initial capital costs were put at US$1.4 billion, although final costs were closer to +US$6 billion. As of 2024, the Société de Participation minière du Sud calédonien (SPMSC), which is 50% owned by the North and Island provinces and 50% by the South province of New Caledonia, has a majority (30%) share of ownership. Prony Resources' employees, via the FCPE (Corporate Mutual Funds), own 12%, and the local population, via the FPRESC, owns a 9% share. Trafigura retained a 19% share. Prony Resources has the remaining 30% of shares via the La Compagnie financière de Prony, which brings together industrial investors, clients and the management of Prony Resources.
