Corporate profile

AngloGold Ashanti Limited (AngloGold Ashanti), with its head office in South Africa, is an independent, global gold mining company with a diverse, high-quality portfolio of operations, projects and exploration activities across nine countries on four continents.

While gold is our principal product, we also produce silver (Argentina) and sulphuric acid (Brazil) as by-products. In Colombia, feasibility studies are currently underway at two of our projects, one of which will produce both gold and copper.

Our history

AngloGold Limited was founded in June 1998 with the consolidation of the gold mining interests of Anglo American.

In August 1998, AngloGold became the first South African company to list on the NYSE.

The company, AngloGold Ashanti as it is now, was formed in April 2004 following the business combination of AngloGold Limited (AngloGold) with Ashanti Goldfields Company Limited (Ashanti). Anglo American started reducing its stake in AngloGold Ashanti in April 2006 via equity placement. Thereafter, Anglo American continued to implement small sales of its remaining interest in AngloGold Ashanti via the market and in March 2009, sold its remaining interest.

Today, AngloGold Ashanti is the third largest gold producing mining company in the world. The Company remains an independent gold producer, with no dominant investor and a diverse spread of shareholders which count among the world’s largest financial institutions.
