Asanko’s vision is to build a low-cost, mid-tier gold mining company through organic production growth, exploration and disciplined deployment of its financial resources.



Jointly owned by Asanko and Gold Fields (JSE, NYSE: GFI), the Asanko Gold Mine is a large scale, multi-pit asset. Built in 2015 ahead of schedule and within budget, first gold was poured in January 2016 and commercial production commenced in April 2016. The mine has a world class safety record and in 2017, produced 205,047 ounces of gold, within the guidance range. In 2018, the mine is targeting 200,000 – 220,000 ounces of gold at AISC of $1,050 – $1,150/oz.


The Asanko Gold Mine has the potential to become of the largest mines in Ghana. The growth projects comprise an expansion of mining operations to integrate the large-scale Esaase deposit including the construction of a conveyor (“Project 5 Million Optimized”) and a plant expansion to double throughput from 5Mtpa to 10Mtpa (“Project 10 Million”). Once completed, production is expected to be ~450,000 ounces/yr.



Ghana is a well known mining jurisdiction with a long history of gold production and a highly trained workforce. The country is Africa’s 2nd largest gold producer and the world’s 8th largest. Ghana is a stable and functioning democracy. The most recent presidential and parliamentary elections took place in December 2016.


Asanko is managed by a highly skilled and successful team of technical, operational and financial professionals who are experienced in mine building and managing large mining operations and have a proven track record of delivery shareholder returns.



The Company is strongly committed to the highest standards for environmental management, social responsibility, and health and safety for its employees and the neighbouring communities.
