“So we are stepping up to the plate and showing our readiness to partner government in supporting the anniversary.

“We have here a cheque from our membership – AngloGold Ashanti, Newmont Ghana, Gold Fields, Chirano, Perseus Mining…and our affiliates and contractors. We have come together to support the celebration and to pray that God bless Ghana on its 60th anniversary.”
