AngloGold Ashanti Ltd. (AU), Africa's largest gold producer, Thursday said it's carrying out an inspection at its Great Noligwa mine in South Africa following a fatality.
The company declined to say if the mine was closed while it and the Department of Mineral Resources carry out an investigation.
The death was caused by a fall of ground late Wednesday, AngloGold said.
Great Noligwa produced 94,000 troy ounces of gold in 2011.
