Title Biodiversity assessment of AngloGold Ashanti’s South African West Wits and Vaal River operations
Type of Information Review Article
Description Phase 2 of AngloGold Ashanti’s biodiversity assessment of its South African West Wits and Vaal River operations was completed in 2007. Comprising verification of the data collated in the desktop study conducted in 2005, the second phase has been important in terms of identifying and determining the extent of terrestrial and aquatic fauna and flora at the two operating areas. This has enabled researchers to map out areas of land at both operations into designated biodiversity management units, which are to be managed by each operating area’s various business units, headed by their respective environmental co-ordinators.
