Worley awarded contract by Sedibelo Platinum Mines

The project, in South Africa’s western limb of the Bushveld Complex, will take SPM’s Pilanesberg Platinum Mines from an open-pit operation to an underground mine. This project will extend the life of mine by 30 years from 2030 to 2060, with first ore expected from the underground operation by 2025.

Gladwin Mfolo, Business Sector Lead Resources, Qatar, Kuwait and Sub Saharan Africa, comments:

“The natural progression for an open-pit mine in an orebody that extends at depth is to transition to underground mining.

“Drawing on our underground mining expertise in South Africa, Australia and South America, we help mine owners around the world explore the feasibility of underground life-of-mine extensions and identify the most efficient and safe underground mining methods.”
