AngloGold Ashanti has secured environmental permits for its Obuasi gold mine in Ghana from the nation’s Environmental Protection Agency. This marks another important milestone paving the way for the redevelopment of this large, high-grade ore body.

The environmental permits relate to the Obuasi redevelopment project and its associated tailings and water infrastructure. The award of the permits follows the Parliamentary ratifications of the regulatory and fiscal agreements that cover the redevelopment of the Obuasi gold mine.

“With the key permitting and regulatory process complete, we will continue to progress the redevelopment of the Obuasi mine as a modern, productive, operation that will benefit a range of key stakeholders for at least two decades,” AngloGold Ashanti CEO, Srinivasan Venkatakrishnan, said.

“We’d like to thank the Government of Ghana and its agencies for their responsive and constructive approach to our negotiations and the regulatory process, showing the alignment of both parties in advancing this important investment into the country.”
