AngloGold a year ago announced plans to halve its South African production by selling mines in an effort to stem losses in its home country, where aging infrastructure, reserve depletion and accidents have raised costs and reduced production. The company also produces silver, uranium oxide, copper, and sulphuric acid. "AngloGold's production is focused on Australia, South America and Africa", said Hochreiter. AngloGold Ashanti Limited was founded in 1944 and is headquartered in Johannesburg, South Africa.
