South Africa Region
AngloGold Ashanti’s five South African deep-level mines and surface production facilities are divided into three areas of operation: Vaal River, West Wits and Surface Operations.
The Vaal River mining operations include Great Noligwa, Kopanang and Moab Khotsong, which are located around 170km to 180km from Johannesburg, near the Vaal River on the Free State-North West Province border. These three mines share a milling and treatment circuit.
The West Wits operations, Mponeng and TauTona, are situated southwest of Johannesburg, on the border between Gauteng and North West Province.
Surface Operations extracts gold from marginal ore dumps and tailings storage facilities on surface at various Vaal River and West Wits operations. Uranium is produced as a byproduct, as is backfill that is used as mining support. Surface Operations includes MWS which operates independently.
