AngloGold Ashanti currently has two wholly owned and managed operations in Ghana. The operations are located in the Ashanti and Western Regions of Ghana, and were acquired following a merger between the former AngloGold Limited of South Africa and Ashanti Goldfields Company Limited of Ghana. The new entity, AngloGold Ashanti Limited, was formed in April 2004.

The Iduapriem Gold Mine, wholly owned by AngloGold Ashanti since September 2007, comprises the Iduapriem and Teberebie properties in a 110km2 concession. Iduapriem is located in the Western Region of Ghana, some 70km north of the coastal city of Takoradi and 10km southwest of the Tarkwa mine. Iduapriem is an open-pit mine and its processing facilities include a carbon-in-pulp (CIP) plant with gravity circuit. The gravity feed recovers about 30% of the gold with the remainder recovered by the CIP plant.
Obuasi is located in the Ashanti Region of Ghana, approximately 60km south of Kumasi. Mining operations has primarily been underground, to a depth of 1500m, however the mine is currently on care and maintenance.
