About AngloGold Ashanti Australia

AngloGold Ashanti Australia

AngloGold Ashanti Australia

AngloGold Ashanti Australia’s two operations, Sunrise Dam and Tropicana (70%), located in Western Australia’s north-eastern goldfields, rank amongst the top 10 gold mines in Australia, jointly producing more than 700,000 ounces per annum.

Now in its fifth year of operation, Tropicana was the most significant gold discovery in Australia for a decade and is now a flagship for innovative mine design and continuous improvement. The orebody remains open at depth and it is likely that an underground mine will be developed to complement the modern, large-scale open cut mine.

Sunrise Dam boasts a world-class orebody, which even after more than 20 years of mining, remains open in all directions. Now solely an underground mine, Sunrise Dam is undergoing a renaissance with successful implementation of a new mining strategy and commissioning of the Recovery Enhancement Project in the processing plant.

With an internationally-recognised track record of discovery, the company’s exploration team is delivering exciting results that have the potential to further grow production in Australia.
