Welcome to Creamer Media’s Resources Watch, a weekly video round-up of the events and people making and shaping the news in the mining industry.

This week:
AngloGold Ashanti aims for its new technology to be competitive this year.
Merafe is in a good position to meet the increased ferrochrome demand.
And, ‘zero harm’ should be South African mines’ ultimate goal.

The new raise-boring technology, which produced 100 kg of gold for AngloGold Ashanti in 2014, is targeted to be competitive with conventional mining this year.

AngloGold Ashanti COO Mike O’Hare

JSE-listed Merafe Resources “remains excited” about the industry as its mix of energy efficient technology and the recent addition of Lion II allows the ferrochrome producer to capitalise on projected growth in ferrochrome demand.

Merafe CEO Zanele Matlala

The target of achieving zero harm on mines and ensuring that all employees return home safely every day must remain the ultimate goal of the industry.

Hogan Lovells partner and mining head Warren Beech
