AngloGold Ashanti Provides Update on Argentina Operations
(PRESS RELEASE – JOHANNESBURG) – AngloGold Ashanti has taken the decision to voluntary
suspend operations at its Cerro Vanguardia mine for 10 days due to the detection of COVID-19 cases
among the workforce.

Local health and labour authorities are being engaged and a full sanitisation process of the site will
commence. Essential activities will continue for the duration of the voluntary suspension.

Operations at Cerro Vanguardia are expected to resume on 20 November 2020, however, movements
to and from the site will be restricted to essential personnel only, until 30 November 2020. The
production impact of this precautionary stoppage is estimated to be 8,000oz.

The balance of AngloGold Ashanti’s mines continue to operate as normal, employing a suite of
measures to mitigate the risk of the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

The health and safety of employees and host communities remains a priority. AngloGold Ashanti is fully
supportive of efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19 and is committed to working with and supporting
the Argentinian government, particularly in the Santa Cruz province, to combat the virus.

AngloGold Ashanti is continually monitoring the situation related to the COVID-19 outbreak and remains
in close contact with authorities in each country, with our employees and with our key suppliers and
other business partners, to help ensure business continuity and mitigate any interruptions that may

For additional information on AngloGold Ashanti’s response to COVID-19, please refer to our website.
