MINDEV SUBSIDIARIES

  • Tollsort: with Mikrosort of Germany, to apply new optical sorting technology to improve recoveries in the southern African minerals industry;
  • Musuku: with Harmony and BEE company, to beneficiate gold bullion into pure (99.99%) gold and into value-added intermediate products such as salts, wire, alloys, bars and high purity gold for electronics, using Mintek technologies. Musuku is the Venda word for gold.
  • Mogale: with management, workers and BEE company, to treat Columbus stainless steel dusts to produce a valuable nickel alloy and to produce ferrochrome using Mintek’s new “Enviroplas” technology, but based on its early DC FeCr technology that was taken over by Samancor in 1993.
  • Atoll: with Bateman (outsourcing some operations to BEE companies), was established prior to Mindev’s formation to provide toll processing services to the ferro-alloys industry to recover valuable alloys from slag dumps
slide8

FEASIBILITY STUDIES INITIATED

  • A coastal Electrolytic Manganese Dioxide (EMD) plant based on SA’s abundant manganese ores. EMD is used in the manufacture of dry-cell batteries
  • A Hot Briquetted Iron (HBI) plant based on SA’s iron ore fines. HBI is used in steel making
  • A coastal ferro-nickel (FeNi) plant based on SA’s cheap electricity and imported laterite ores. FeNi is used in stainless steel production
  • A plant to recover platinum concentrate from chromite tailings dumps (the Platdumps project)

REGIONAL STUDIES - Completed or underway

  • Mineral potential of the Gariep SDI of the Northern Cape
  • Mozambican part of the Beira Corridor and Zambezi SDI
  • First phase of a mineral scan for the Nacala corridor in Mozambique, Malawi and Zambia
  • A scan of the aluminium downstream industry for the CDC (Coega)
  • A titanium cluster study in East London for ECDC in Eastern Cape
  • Mintek signed an historic MOU with the ECDC to develop eight mineral based projects in the Eastern Cape
  • Mintek is also in discussion with other provinces to help them develop mineral based projects (N.Prov & Limpopo)
  • Mintek is co-ordinating The Great African Rift Development Strategy (GARDS) on behalf of COHORT (committee of SA’s Science Councils)

RESOURCE-BASED SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT

  • The RBSD thesis has been incorporated into the National R&D Strategy
    • The overall objective and aim of the RBSD project is to identify the critical factors and necessary conditions (i.e. “lessons”) required for a resource-based economy such as South Africa to make the transition to a high-tech industrialised state
    • Study trip to Sweden and Finland to build a research network
  • Mining Inputs Cluster
    • Mintek has also been tasked with facilitating the development of a mineral processing inputs cluster (consumables, capital goods, services)
    • Mintek proceeded to initiate the resuscitation of the South African mining cluster and has received the commitment of various industry, government, science council, and organisational support for this endeavour
      • Defining the inputs cluster in terms of key product categories and the type of goods and services associated with them.
      • Putting together a database of leading South African and international firms associated with the domestic mining and mineral processing sector.
      • Funding proposal has been submitted to Fridge

RURAL DEVELOPMENT & POVERTY ALLEVIATION

  • Kgabane Project
    • The Kgabane Jewellery and Craft Project was initiated by the Ministry of Minerals and Energy to alleviate poverty and create jobs through the creation of a vibrant and inclusive jewellery industry and taking advantage of existing resources
    • The project was formally launched in October 2002 during the Mining Week, with a jewellery show. The launch celebrated the Kgabane – Harmony range, which was realised through its partnership with Harmony Gold
    • A Production and Training Unit has been set up and is operational. The unit is tasked with the creating a range of jewellery products that will be inspired by rural - indigenous craft designs and will utilise a range of materials ranging from natural fibres, beads, ceramics, precious and semi-precious metals and stones
    • Through the Kgabane Rural Development Jewellery Project, seven groups of crafts-women from rural and urban impoverished areas have been set up and are receiving training according to the unit standards qualification set with the Mining Qualifications Authority
