Performance review

Highlights of the year

Gold production increased for the second consecutive year, boosted by the contributions of new mines, Kibali and Tropicana, which had their first full year of production in 2014. The rationalisation of corporate structures and marginal production continued with a range of initiatives – including mine closure and asset sales – to improve the overall quality of the portfolio. Active management of overhead and operating costs, to generate free cash flow, remained a priority.
