Our Business

Anglo American is a global and diversified mining business that provides the raw materials that are essential for economic development and modern life.

For almost 100 years we have been mining the minerals that society needs to develop and prosper from. As one of the world’s largest mining companies, you can find our operations in five continents where we mine iron ore and manganese, metallurgical coal and thermal coal, base metals and minerals (copper), nickel, niobium and phosphates, precious metals and minerals, in which we’re a global leader in both platinum and diamonds.

In South Africa we mine, process and market four of these commodities, namely platinum, thermal coal, diamonds, and iron ore. We do this through four businesses in South Africa, which are Platinum, Coal, De Beers, and Kumba Iron Ore.

South Africa has a long history when it comes to mining, an industry that forms the backbone of the country’s economy. As Anglo American, we aim to help build a stronger, healthier, and more sustainable South Africa. Ever since our foundations were first laid in Johannesburg way back in 1917, and together with our employees, stakeholders and government, we find ourselves in a profound position to make a real difference and to create shared value for those that come in contact with our business.

Together we can deliver a sustainable mining business, with sustainable long-term returns for our stakeholders, investors, and for South Africa. For us, this is why mining matters.
