Gold Mine Investment
Pan African Resources has succeeded in continuously increasing its gold production levels while simultaneously lowering its all-in sustaining costs. All-in sustaining costs measure all applicable operational and capital production costs, from production and procurement overheads to exploration and development investment.
For investors, this means the group’s mines are running at optimal levels, using as little capital as possible. Investment gains compare favourably with costs.
