Anglo American has announced that repairs at its processing facilities would continue while operations at the company’s underground mines and smelter were curtailed due to a three-week lockdown over the coronavirus pandemic in South Africa (SA).

The company noted that the repairs of the Anglo Converter Plant (ACP) Phase B unit would continue after water was detected in the furnace at the ACP phase A earlier this month, forcing it to declare force majeure and cut its production outlook.
