Sibanye Gold now Sibanye-Stillwater

Sibanye Gold has changed its name to Sibanye-Stillwater, following the successful acquisition of US-based Stillwater Mining.

The company also announced its six-month results to end June 2017, according to which it made a headline loss of R2.181 billion. This was impacted by a lower average gold price and gold production, the miner said.

Neal Froneman, Sibanye-Stillwater CEO, said in a statement:

"Sibanye- Stillwater has become a truly competitive, international mining company with a unique portfolio of world class, scalable, precious metal assets."
