During the six months to December 2017, Pan African delivered 85,282 ounces of gold produced from its South African projects, down nearly 7% on the comparable period in 2016.

Even so, Pan African still ranks comfortably among mid-tier producers and continues to pay a dividend, marked at just under 0.88p per share for the full financial year.
