Africa-focused miner to increase gold output in DRC
Jersey-based miner Randgold Resources has announced its investments in automated underground mining solu-tions will allow the Kibali gold mine in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) to increase its production to 730,000 oz, up 22% com-pared with a year earlier.
"Later this year, Kibali will move from underground mining by contrac-tors to owner-mining, as has already happened at Randgold’s Loulo mines in Mali," the company said in a statement. "Kibali ranks as one of the most automated underground gold mines in Africa and the third-largest open-stoping gold mine in the world."
