Modern Mining December 2018In a further boost to Zimbabwe’s reviving mining sector, the ground-breaking ceremony for the Arcadia lithium project near Harare in Zimbabwe took place in late November, with Zimbabwe’s President, Emmerson Mnangagwa in attendance. The project, covered in this issue, will have a plant throughput of 2,4 Mt/a.

Further north in Africa, we look at Resolute Mining’s plans to install a new solar hybrid power plant at its Syama gold mine in Mali. Other mines that have commissioned similar systems during 2018 are Essakane, also in Mali, and Otjikoto in Namibia.

Modern Mining November 2018There are not too many mines coming on stream in South Africa these days so it was very satisfying for Modern Mining to recently attend the launch of Canyon Coal’s Khanye opencast mine near Bronkhorstspruit, which has cost R500 million to develop and which will produce at a rate of 200 000 tons per month once in full production.

Modern Mining October 2018 covers 1

Ivanhoe’s Platreef PGM project near Mokopane in Limpopo Province is one of only a small handful of ‘greenfield’ mining projects currently underway in South Africa. The project, which in its first phase will produce 476 000 ounces a year of platinum, palladium, rhodium and gold, recently reached a milestone – as we explain in an article in this issue – when its Shaft 1 intersected the high-grade ‘Flatreef’ deposit at a depth of approximately 780 m.

Modern Mining August 2018In this issue we cover a wide spread of different metals and minerals, including diamonds, chrome (or more properly chromite) and gold.

Our coverage of diamond mining focuses on the activities of alluvial diamond miner, Steyn Diamante, in the Northern Cape while our article on chrome mining looks at the extensive alluvial operations of African Chrome Fields in the midlands of Zimbabwe. Gold is covered in a report on the new R1,7 billion Elikhulu Tailings Retreatment Plant at Pan African’s Evander property in Mpumalanga.

ModernMining July 2018The difference that technology and efficient mine planning can make to the operating margins of mines is well illustrated by the initiatives that Kumba Iron Ore has taken its Sishen and Kolomela mines in the Northern Cape. At Sishen, for example, the current fleet of mining trucks is significantly smaller than it was in 2015 and yet is handling more material, as our article on Kumba in this issue explains.
