Anglo American Platinum Limited is the world's largest primary producer of platinum, accounting for about 38% of the world's annual supply.

Based in South Africa, most of the group's operations lie to the northwest and northeast of Johannesburg. A majority of the company's operations take place in the Bushveld Igneous Complex, a large region that contains a range of mineral commodities including chromium, vanadium, titaniferous magnetite and platinum group metals.

The company exists to make a real difference for everyone whose lives we touch. We mine the materials that make modern life possible, in ways that are safer, smarter and more responsible.

The products we produce reside in three distinct areas: Platinum Group Metals (platinum, palladium, rhodium, iridium, ruthenium, osmium); base metals (copper, nickel, cobalt sulphate, sodium sulphate, chrome) and precious metals (gold).
