Central Rand Gold and Environmental AffairsBackground

  • Between 1886 to the early 1970’s the Central Basin was extensively mined.

  • The Mining Companies that exploited this resource have closed

  • CRG is a small junior mining company formed in 2007

  • CRG received its first mining right in November 2008

  • CRG’s mining and prospecting rights are all based within the Central Basin

  • Mining right covers 12km strike down to 900mbs

  • Current operations include one decline and limited mine developed which has been stopped at 200mbs

  • CRG has since late 2008 publically supported the development and implementation of a long term sustainable water solution

  • The EMP excludes any past water liability

  • CRG is a active member of CBEC, which has participated in various discussions with Government since 2009

  • CRG volunteered to provide R35m funding towards this project, based on a resource base at 400mbs

  • To protect the resource base; CRG acquired 2x submersible pumps (R35m) in August 2010.

    • The pumps had the longest delivery lead time – 12 months

    • The pumps were specifically engineered for the Central Basin

    • Pumps have a capacity of 72mlpd enabling the de-watering of the Central Basin


Central rand gold project economics

Significant resource value has been “lost” since the SWV pumps were stopped in 2008 i.e. 4.67moz.

CRG is placing its operations in “care and maintenance” until clarity is obtained - at what level the water table can be stopped at?

Over 200 jobs have been lost at CRG as a result of the uncertainty surrounding the rising water table
