AngloGold Ashanti Group tests new boring technology


The mining sector in South Africa is keen for some good news and the mineral resources minister visited the TauTona Mine, near Johannesburg to see the reef boring technology, which will initially focus on old mined areas within the mine and then be expanded.

Gold miners in the country continue to face challenges because of the type of rock strata they have to dig through to access the gold carrying ore.

It is a dangerous occupation so owners are looking to technology for efficiency and reduced risk to people.
