Gold mining in South Africa started more than a century ago in the Witwatersrand goldfields. Most of the high-grade gold deposits have been exhausted and mines now exploit lower grades. This means that optimization is required to derive optimal value from the remaining low-grade and deep-lying deposits (Musingwini, 2014). Figure 3 shows the arithmetic mean of the ore grade of the main gold
