AngloGold Ashanti sees a rise in Q1 earnings

It’s been a bumpy first quarter for AngloGold Ashanti. The miner says it produced 7 percent less gold year-on-year in the first quarter. Some of this is being blamed on COVID-19 absenteeism at its Ghana and Brazil mines. But the good news is that the higher gold price helped cushion the impact.

Its reported headline earnings of R2.8-billion is a 51 percent improvement from the previous reporting period. She says Obuasi is also making steady progress to completion.
Interim Chief Executive Officer Christine Ramon says the group’s balance sheet is in a solid position.
