A Brief History

In 1936, the first Geita deposits were discovered and by 1966, three mines had produced almost 1Moz of gold.

Ashanti acquired the project through acquisition of Cluff Resources in 1996 and in early December 2000, Ashanti reached an agreement to sell AngloGold a 50% interest in Geita for $324 million. AngloGold added its neighbouring Nyamulilima Hill deposits into the JV company.

  • In 2004, the merger of AngloGold and Ashanti resulted in the operation being wholly run by AngloGold Ashanti.
  • In 2015, a decision was taken to go underground at Star and Comet and the underground development started in 2016.
  • In 2017 the Nyankanga underground operation commenced and in 2020 the Geita Hill underground commenced and is scheduled to ramp up to full production by the end of 2022.

The Nyankanga open pit, the only remaining operating pit at the time, was mined to completion in September 2020. In April 2021, the Nyamulilima open pit commenced operations.
