#118 DD - Mining Development In Ghana - with Eric Asubonteng

View descriptionShare

In this episode we chat to Eric Asubonteng, MD of AngloGold Ashanti Obuasi Mine who are an independent, global gold mining company with a diverse, high-quality portfolio of operations, projects and exploration activities across ten countries on four continents. They are the 3rd largest gold producer globally and the largest on the African continent.

Eric is also the President of the Ghana Chamber of Mines, so would be interesting to hear more about that, and how mining is developing in Ghana and in the African market and what lessons can be learnt.


  • Mining is a sector with many pursuits, and which can provide experience on many levels, no matter the role in which we find ourselves.
  • Mining is a hugely productive enterprise. It can provide practical and exciting experience from the start, and huge opportunities in areas that would, perhaps, have not been thought productive.
  • Mining can produce lasting, positively impactful change, providing opportunity and revitalisation to communities and humanity.
  • Ghana has a long and rich mining history. Some operations have been running since the 19th century, and so have contributed to a rich heritage. This will continue.


'As a management accountant I got to understand the business more and more'

'My interest in mining is because of the practical nature'

'You see the real contribution that mining can make'

'The mining industry is a key lever, that if harnessed properly can work as a catalyst to drive significant change'
