Johannesburg - Shares of gold companies fall in Johannesburg after government data shows production fell by 21 percent in December.

Sibanye Gold, which was carved from Gold Fields and listed in Johannesburg this week, has added 6.6 percent.

Analysts have said it will have a dividend yield of about 7 percent or more, making it attractive. - Reuters
