Iduapriem is a Anglogold Ashanti`s remaining operating asset in Ghana. In 2016 the operation produced 214koz of gold. This was up from the 192koz produced in 2015. The improvement was due to the mining and processing of higher grade material and increased plant throughput. The plant is being modified in 2017 to improve recoveries. To extend the mine life a major waste stripping programme started in 2016.
