OPEN CAST MINING

An example of our Open Cast Mining capabilities, is our JV with Mintails SA at the Kimberley reef on the West Rand. Here we are starting a shallow, open cast mining project to remove gold bearing conglomerates close to the surface that would otherwise be sterilized. The value in addition to the gold yields, is that the soft underlying layers of reef can be removed, thereby eliminating the chances of subsistence and stabilising the land for development as a recreational park.
