Acacia Mining
Sibanye Gold, the South African gold major, has confirmed that it is not actively pursuing a potential transaction with Acacia, the East-African focused gold producer.

Sibanye Gold was responding to recent press statements involving Acacia.

The company confirms that it was considering a possible offer for Acacia, but says this is no longer the case.

As a result, Sibanye Gold and any person acting in connection with it will, except with the consent of the Takeover Panel, be bound by the restrictions contained in Rule 2.8 of the Code.

However, Sibanye reserves the right to make an offer in the circumstances set out in Note 2 on Rule 2.8 of the Code.
