Anglo American will sell more mines, cut its dividend this year (and next) and make deep cost cuts across the business in what CEO Mark Cutifani called an "aggressive restructuring" to cope with the global downturn in commodity prices and demand.

This is according to a report by Alan Seccombe, Resources Editor at Business Day.

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Seccombe.

I think Anglo American will survive.
