Sibanye Stillwater (JSE: SGL; NYSE: SBGL) said on Monday that South Africa’s top gold miners should merge and create a rival to the world’s largest producers, Newmont (NYSE: NEM) and Barrick Gold (TSE: ABX; NYSE: GOLD), or risk being acquired.

Chief executive Neal Froneman said he believed that combining his company with Gold Fields (JSE, NYSE: GFI) and AngloGold (JSE: ANG; NYSE: AU) would be in South Africa’s national interest, Johannesburg-based Business Day reported.

Sibanye, formed by spinning off Gold Fields’ oldest South African mines in 2013, has been growing the business since.
