Headquartered in Johannesburg, South Africa, AngloGold Ashanti has 20 operations on four continents and several exploration programs in both the established and new gold producing regions of the world. AngloGold Ashanti employed 61,242 people, including contractors, in 2011 and produced 4.33Moz of gold.
AngloGold Ashanti endeavours to maximize the returns delivered to shareholders, throughout the economic cycle, by producing gold safely, responsibly and efficiently.
In addition to the six deep-level mines and one surface operation in South Africa, AngloGold Ashanti has surface and underground mining operations in the Americas, Australia and elsewhere on the African continent.
AngloGold Ashanti's business strategy is reviewed regularly to determine progress in its implementation against the backdrop of a dynamic operating and regulatory environment. These evaluations allow for tactical adjustments necessary to achieve the ultimate goal of becoming "the leading mining company".
In a continuous drive to be more efficient, AngloGold Ashanti Ltd, Continental Africa Region, has embarked on a process of identifying and isolating those items that are surplus to our current mining requirements. Given our valued relationship history with a large International Mining Business segment, we have decided to make these items available in the market on an Ex-Works (INCOTERM 2000) Ex-Mine "For-sale" basis.
