The Obuasi Mine, a subsidiary of AngloGold Ashanti steps up to developing the Obuasi community. The Mine is injecting $1 million into infrastructural development in the Obuasi Township as part of her corporate-social responsibility in Ghana. The Managing Director, Mr. Eric Asubonteng in the company of both the Municipal Chief Executive and the District Chief Executive of Obuasi, cut the sod for the construction of a 1.3 km stretch of road and drainage in Obuasi on June 3, 2020.
Just like the success chalked by the company’s initiative in the Malaria Control Programme in 2006, the Obuasi Mine which is coming back to life, is encouraged to continue with such social intervention programmes, which have the potential to setting the stage of legacy, to gradually transforming Obuasi to be like Johannesburg.
AngloGold Ashanti has seven mining operations on the continent of Africa. Production from the Africa region increased to 1.538 Moz in 2019 compared to 1.512 Moz in 2018. This was largely due to record production at Kibali (DRC) and Iduapriem (Ghana), and an exceptional performance at Geita (Tanzania).
