The FerroAlloys business consists of the Vlakpoort mine, Zeerust mine and Mecklenburg mine in South Africa. The business produces chrome ore for sale to global markets.

Mecklenburg

Mine

The Mecklenburg Mine is located on the Eastern Limb of the Bushveld Complex, well known for hosting much of the world's known resources of platinum, but also a major source of chromite. The Mecklenburg mine started full production in July 2013. The Company is currently evaluating underground mining at Mecklenburg.

Vlakpoort

Mine

The Vlakpoort Mine is situated on the Northern part of the western limb of the Bushveld complex in South Africa. It was acquired in 2011 when the prospecting right was bought. Since then extensive exploration work was conducted which include geological drilling, trenching and a bulk sample of the LG5 and LG 6 seams that were taken to test the market. The resource consists of the LG1-6, MG1-4 and the UG1- 2 and Merensky reefs outcropping on the property.

Zeerust

Mine

Afarak acquired Zeerust in 2017 for its high-quality ore.
