Headquartered in Johannesburg, South Africa, AngloGold Ashanti has a globally diverse, world-class portfolio of operations and projects

AngloGold Ashanti is the third-largest gold mining company in the world, measured by production.


As at 1 March 2018, AngloGold Ashanti has 14 mines and 3 projects in ten countries. On 28 February 2018, AngloGold Ashanti completed the sale of its Vaal River assets and put the TauTona mine (including the Savuka section) into orderly closure. The sale included AngloGold Ashanti’s entire interest in Nuclear Fuels Corporation of South Africa Proprietary Limited (“Nufcor”); and in Margaret Water Company.


For the year ended 31 December 2017, our portfolio of 17 operations and three projects in ten countries included long-life, relatively low-cost operating assets with differing ore body types, located in key gold-producing regions. These operating assets were supported by greenfields projects and a focused exploration programme.


AngloGold Ashanti produced 3.8Moz of gold in 2017, generating $4.36bn in gold income, utilising $830m capital expenditure. AngloGold Ashanti has an attributable Ore Reserve of 49.5Moz of gold and an attributable Mineral Resource of 208.2Moz

Our five key business objectives support our core strategy

  • Focus on people, safety and sustainability: our business must operate according to our values if it is to remain sustainable in the long term.
  • Optimise overhead, costs and capital expenditure: all spending decisions must be checked and double checked to ensure they are necessary to fulfil our core business objective.
  • Improve portfolio quality: we have a portfolio of assets that must be actively managed as we strive for a competitive valuation as a business.
  • Ensure financial flexibility: the balance sheet is the foundation of our company and we must ensure it always remains able to meet our core funding needs.
  • Maintain long-term optionality: while we are focused on ensuring the most efficient day-to-day operation of our business we must keep an eye on creating a competitive pipeline of long-term opportunities


To create value for our shareholders, our employees and our business and social partners through safely and responsibly exploring, mining and marketing our products. Our primary focus is gold, but we will pursue value creating opportunities in other minerals where we can leverage our existing assets, skills and experience to enhance the delivery of value.
