Corporate profile

AngloGold Ashanti is a global gold mining and exploration company with a diverse portfolio of mining operations and projects on four continents, with more than 96% of the company’s revenue derived from the sale of gold produced at its operations located around the world. Working across the full spectrum of the mining value chain, safety and the sustainability of the company’s operating activities remain a core focus for management. Headquartered in Johannesburg, South Africa, AngloGold Ashanti has 20 operations in 10 countries. Two new mines, Tropicana in Australia and Kibali in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), began production in late 2013.

Following a strategic review of AngloGold Ashanti’s asset portfolio at the start of 2013, particularly as it pertains to development and exploration projects, the company embarked on significant restructuring in response to current challenges in the gold sector, including increasing costs of production and sustained lower gold prices. Management of AngloGold Ashanti is organised into four business segment under two chief operating officers – South Africa and International – as follow:

  • South Africa comprises the operations and assets in the following areas in South Africa:
    • West Wits;
    • Vaal River; and
    • Surface Operations, which includes First Uranium SA which owns Mine Waste Solutions (MWS).
  • International comprises the company’s operating assets outside of South Africa as follows:
    • Continental Africa with operations in the DRC (1), Ghana, Guinea, Mali and Tanzania;
    • Australasia which comprises two operations in Australia (2); and
    • Americas with operations in Argentina, Brazil and the United States.

    (1) Kibali began production in September 2013.
