Siguiri, a multiple open-pit oxide gold mine, is AngloGold Ashanti’s sole operation in the Republic of Guinea. AngloGold Ashanti holds an 85% interest in Siguiri with the balance of 15% being held by the Government of Guinea.
The Siguiri mine covers a concession area of 1,500km2 in the relatively remote district of Siguiri, around 850km northeast of the country’s capital Conakry. The area, which has significant potential for gold mining, has long been an area of traditional artisanal mining. Local economic activity is closely connected to gold mining.
Conventional mining is undertaken by contractors in multiple open pits using conventional techniques. On surface, Siguiri’s gold processing plant treats about 30,000 tonnes daily.
