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.

MM April 2018 Front coverMining is as much about getting discontinued mining operations back into production as it is about bringing new mines on stream. One company that is working towards restoring operations at a past-producing mine and bringing it to its full potential is Cradle Arc, which is the majority shareholder and operator of the Mowana copper mine in Botswana. Modern Mining recently spoke to Kevin van Wouw, CEO of the company, and Mark Jones, COO, to learn more about their plans for the mine, which is currently Botswana’s only copper producer.
