WESTONARIA, South Africa, July 28 (Reuters) - South Africa's Sibanye Gold might be interested in the assets of Barrick Gold's African unit Acacia Mining, its chief executive said on Thursday.

"Yes, if there was value, certainly," Neal Froneman told Reuters when asked if Sibanye could be a potential buyer.

Barrick Gold, the world's largest gold producer, is weighing a sale of its majority stake in Acacia and has approached several South African miners, sources familiar with the situation told Reuters this week. (Reporting by Ed Stoddard; Writing by Joe Brock; Editing by James Macharia)
