Caledonia has a strong, experienced management team and board of directors with diverse expertise in gold production, exploration, mine development, finance and marketing. The group’s management team is based in Johannesburg, South Africa, London, United Kingdom and Jersey, Channel Islands.

Caledonia paid its initial dividend in February 2012. On April 4, 2013 Caledonia announced an annual dividend in respect of the year to December 31, 2012.

On November 25, 2013 Caledonia announced that in 2014 it intended to pay an annual aggregate dividend of 6 Canadian cents per common share, payable on a quarterly basis. The first quarterly dividend of 1.5 Canadian cents per common share was declared and paid in January 2014. Further quarterly dividends were paid thereafter.

On December 16, 2015, Caledonia announced that henceforth it would report its financial results in United States Dollars. The dividend paid at the end of January 2016 was therefore denominated in United States Dollars.

In Q3 of 2016 Caledonia increased its quarterly dividend from 1.125 US cents per share to 1.375 US cents per share, an increase of 22%, representing an annual dividend of 5.5 US cents.

In conjunction with the overall 1 for 5 share consolidation which became effective on June 26, 2017, Caledonia announced on July 4, 2017 that it had made a commensurate adjustment to the dividend by increasing it fivefold.

Caledonia acquired the Blanket Mine from Kinross Gold Corporation with effect from April 2006. Following the implementation of indigenisation with effect from September 5, 2012, Caledonia now owns 49% of Blanket.


Blanket Gold Mine is a well-established Zimbabwean gold mine, which operates at a depth of approximately 750 meters below surface and produced approximately 45,500 ounces of gold in 2013. Blanket also holds brownfield exploration and development projects both on the existing mine area and on its satellite properties which are within trucking distance of the Blanket metallurgical recovery plant.

In November 2014, Caledonia announced a revised investment plan for the Blanket Mine in terms of which production is expected to increase to approximately 80,000 ounces of gold by 2021 following the investment of approximately US$70m, all of which is expected to be funded from internal cash generation and existing cash resources.

The Blanket Mine is located in the south-west of Zimbabwe approximately 15 km west of Gwanda, the provincial capital of Matabeleland South. Gwanda is 150 km south east of Bulawayo the country’s second largest city and 196 km northwest of the Beit Bridge Border post with South Africa, and 560 km from Harare, Zimbabwe’s capital city. Access to the mine is by an all-weather tarred road from Gwanda, which is linked from Beit Bridge to Bulawayo and Harare by a national highway.
