Harmony is a South African gold mining and exploration company established in 1950. It is one of the largest gold mining organisations in the world. It was once lease-bound mining operation. However, it expanded into a world-class producer of gold and as of now it has one open-pit operation, 9 underground mines in South Africa and numerous surface sources. It also has gold mine and open-pit silver in Papua New Guinea.
