Business Description

Industry: Metals & Mining » Gold
Compare:EGO, ABX, GG, NMCEF, IAG » details
Traded in other countries:HMY.Belgium, HAM.Germany, HAM1.Germany
Harmony Gold Mining Co Ltd was incorporated and registered as a public Company in South Africa on August 25, 1950. The Company and its subsidiaries are engaged in underground and surface gold mining and related activities, including exploration, extraction and processing. Gold bullion, the Group's main product, is currently produced at its operations in South Africa. Harmony has operations in Papua New Guinea, where the construction of the Hidden Valley mine is being completed, as well as in Western Australia. It is currently the third largest producer of gold in South Africa, producing some 23% of the country's gold output, and is among the world's top ten gold producers. In South Africa, it operate a total of 10 underground operations, one open cast mine, and eight processing plants which are located in all of the currently known goldfields in the Witwatersrand basin of South Africa as well as the Green Stone belt. Harmony's interests internationally are currently mainly located in PNG and represent 4% (or 2.1 million ounces) of its total proven and probable reserves. The Company's interests in Australia now consist solely of one site located at Mount Magnet in Western Australia. This site has been closed down and the plant has been put on care and maintenance since December 2007. The Company's gold-focused exploration program has two components: on-mine exploration, targeting resources within the economic radius of existing mines and new mine exploration targeting early to advanced stage projects around the world. It conducts exploration activities on its own or with joint venture partners. The Company currently has eight operational metallurgical plants and two metallurgical plants on care and maintenance in South Africa. It also has a metallurgical plant at the Hidden Valley project in PNG. The main gold extraction processes the Company uses are carbon in leach, or CIL, and carbon in pulp, or CIP. Its Wafi project comprises the sedimentary/volcaniclastic rocks of the Owen Stanley Formation that surround the Wafi Diatreme and host the gold mineralization. Gold mineralization occurs as high-sulphidation epithermal alteration overprinting porphyry mineralization and epithermal style vein-hosted and replacement gold mineralization with associated wall-rock alteration. The Company is subject to environmental regulations.
