AGA Siguiri mine is a multiple open-pit oxide gold mine in the relatively remote district of Siguiri, around 850km northeast of the country’s capital, Conakry. The area has significant potential for gold mining and has long been an area of traditional artisanal mining. The gold processing plant treats about 30,000t daily.
AGA Siguiri mine holds an 85% interest in Siguiri, with the remaining 15% held in trust for the nation by the Government of Guinea. Headquartered in Johannesburg, South Africa, AngloGold Ashanti has 20 gold mining operations in 10 countries, as well as several exploration programs in both the established and new gold producing regions of the world.
