Profits soar for African gold miner Randgold Resources

African mining firm Randgold Resources says profits for the first quarter were up 92% on the same period last year.

Rival miner, Harmony, has unveiled a 32% jump in quarterly profits.

The sector is benefiting from the soaring price of gold, but as Russell Padmore reports, there are big problems to overcome in order to maintain output.
