Sunrise Dam still has a long, bright future, says AngloGold

The company successfully commissioned the recovery enhancement project at the operation at the end of June.

Development of the large, high-grade Vogue deposit is underway, which will further enhance performance.

The combination of higher grades, improved recoveries, increased mining volumes and other productivity enhancements is expected to result in Sunrise Dam's production rising by around 25% to 300,000 ounces this year.

Sunrise Dam produced 236,000oz last year at all-in sustaining costs of US$1203 an ounce.

Later today in Johannesburg, AngloGold senior vice president Australia Mike Erickson will make a presentation that will map out a path to sustain long-term production from Sunrise Fam at 300,000-350,000oz per annum at AISC trending towards $900/...
