What We Do
Our Business and
How We Create Value
We strive to secure, develop and operate a portfolio of high-quality resource assets from which we deliver leading shareholder returns. Our strategy of investing in mining growth and infrastructure ensures the success of our mine and increases its lifespan.
Three-quarters of SBPM’s underground mining activities are mined conventionally, using stoping with strike pillars. Opencast
mining operations occur on the farm Turfbult.
Underground mining occurs at depths of 850m to 1400 meters, while open cast excavations occur in 100-meter-wide strips that are 35 meters wide.
90% of production is focused at the UG2 reef. Other areas of focus are the Merensky reef and the Turfbult farm.
Where We Operate
We currently extract UG2 and Merensky ore from our reserve base via underground shafts and open cast activities. This ore is treated in milling and flotation circuits to produce a final PGM-rich concentrate.
