AngloGold Ashanti Ltd. Announces Executive Changes

AngloGold Ashanti announced the appointment of Chris Sheppard, a thirty-year veteran of South Africa's ultra-deep underground mining sector as incoming Chief Operating Officer: South Africa. He will replace the incumbent Mike O'Hare who plans to take early retirement during the course of 2015 after a distinguished career of almost forty years with the company. Chris' appointment as Chief Operating Officer: South Africa will be effective June 1, 2015 at which point he will also join the company's executive committee. Mike will support Chris during the course of the year to ensure an orderly handover. Chris, a mining engineer by profession, was most recently Managing Director of Murray & Roberts Cementation. Over more than four years Chris had oversight across several countries and mineral types of activities including mining, shaft sinking, tunnelling, raise drilling, mine development and exploration drilling. He also led the drive to adapt the business to the challenging market conditions that have affected the global mining sector. Prior to that, Chris held positions as head of both mining and technical services at Lonmin Plc for four years, following six years at Anglo American Platinum Ltd., where he most recently held the post of Head Mining Technical Services. Chris is also an alumnus of Anglo American Plc's Gold & Uranium Division and AngloGold Ltd., where he served latterly as general manager of deep gold mining operations in the Free State between 1997 and 2001.
