IMPLATS’ PLATINUM OUNCES INTO THE FUTURE

Of this, 1.15 million ounces will still come from Implats’ mainstay, the Impala Platinum lease area in the western Bushveld near Rustenburg. That operation will remain at its steady state of production, with two major shaft sinking projects recently begun to replace older shafts nearing the end of their lives.

The 20 shaft, being sunk by Murray and Roberts Cementation, will be the last shaft in Impala’s main lease area to go down just over 1,000 metres; the others in the future will be deeper. The 20 shaft underwent its first blast for the main shaft sink in August 2005, with the pre-sink having been completed. The 20 shaft is at the northern end of Impala’s lease area next to the 12 North shaft, and it will produce 185,000 tonnes of reef a month. It will consist of a single large station below reef, with a decline system feeding upwards and another one feeding downwards. It is scheduled to begin its first production in 2007.
