AngloGold Ashanti and De Beers create exploration and mining joint venture

06 october 2009

AngloGold Ashanti and De Beers have created a joint venture for the exploration and mining of gold and other precious metals and minerals, Antwerpfacetsonline reported.
The joint venture will focus on marine deposits located in, or adjacent to, the area between the high water mark and the edge of the continental shelf on a worldwide basis, the firms said in a statement.
"De Beers, together with its wholly owned subsidiary De Beers Marine and other companies and associates within the De Beers Group of Companies, have, through their marine diamond exploration and mining activities, developed certain skills, expertise and proprietary technology in relation to the exploration and mining of marine deposits on the continental shelf."
The joint venture will establish a technical services company (Techco) which will be developed into a marine exploration and mining services company.
AngloGold Ashanti's will fund the joint venture and Techco until the completion of an initial exploration period of at least three consecutive sampling seasons as approved and budgeted for prior to 31 December 2012, or the date upon which AngloGold Ashanti has sole funded a total amount of US$40 million, whichever milestone is achieved first.
At that point, AngloGold Ashanti will have earned equivalent interests to De Beers in all the sub-joint venture opportunities and the companies will be equal partners in the joint venture and will therefore equally fund and share in the benefits arising from all existing and future opportunities pursued under the joint venture.
