Quick Facts




Estimated Reserves




Obuasi is located in the Ashanti region of southern Ghana, approximately 80km south of Kumasi and some 320km northwest of the capital Accra. It is primarily an underground mine operating at depths of up to 1,500m with a continuous history of mining dating back to the 1890s.

Underground production was suspended in late 2014; with activities restricted to production from developed stopes and the processing of surface mining tailings. A detailed feasibility study using input from international consultants began, following on from an earlier in-house study.
