Report summaryAhafo is an open pit operation that utilises conventional mining methods. The processing plant comprises carbon-in-leach (CIL) circuit for gold recovery. A Feasibility Study is on-going for gold production from underground targets. Newmont is evaluating a possible 3.5Mt/a mill expansion program which could result in at least a 100koz/a increase in gold production while lowering costs and off-setting impact of lower grades and harder ore. Subject to board approval (expected in H2, 2016), the additional programme is expected to come on-line in 2018.
