Cooke is a large, shallow to intermediate level gold and uranium mining and processing operation located in the Far West Rand Goldfields of the Witwatersrand Basin, near the town of Carletonville in the Gauteng Province of South Africa, 70 km west of Johannesburg.
Acquired in 2013 from Gold One International, as of 31 December 2018, Cooke has total surface gold mineral reserves of 159,000 oz and total surface and underground mineral resources of 6.44 million oz.
Underground operations at Cooke ceased in late 2017. The only production currently is from surface tailings storage facilities. Surface material is processed at two gold processing plants, one external on a toll treatment basis.
Our gold operations consist of underground mining and surface treatment facilities in the Witwatersrand Basin.
We work to avoid, minimise and mitigate any negative environmental impacts where we operate.
The 2018 report provides a full description of the Group’s mineral asset estimation as at 31 December 2018.
