In 2011, AngloGold Ashanti produced 4.33Moz of gold (2010: 4.52Moz) as well as 1.38Mlbs of uranium, 2.96Moz of silver and 206.54 tonnes of sulphuric acid as by-products, and employed 61,242 people, including contractors, at year-end. Increased gold production in the Americas and Continental Africa regions was insufficient to offset declines in South Africa and Australasia where workplace disruptions and floods respectively hampered output.

Our exploration programme is extensive yet focused, and we have five significant greenfield projects – Gramalote and La Colosa in Colombia, Mongbwalu and Kibali in the DRC and Tropicana in Australia.

The group‘s operations are divided into the following regions:

  • South Africa – includes operations in South Africa;
  • Continental Africa – includes operations in Ghana, Guinea, Mali, Namibia and Tanzania;
  • Australasia – includes the operation in Australia; and
  • Americas – includes operations in Argentina, Brazil and the United States.

Accordingly the operations review that follows has been undertaken on this basis.
