Sept 21 (Reuters) - Sibanye-Stillwater CEO Neal
Froneman said on Monday he wanted to increase the mining
company's exposure to gold, but added that it was a difficult
time to do deals.
"We really do like gold," Froneman told the Gold Forum
Americas conference. The precious metal which has surged 27%
this year only accounts for about 10% of Sibanye's
earnings at the moment.
Sibanye, the world's largest producer of platinum and
rhodium, aims to acquire gold mines outside South Africa,
Froneman said, in a bid to diversify its geographical exposure.
