Name of the Project
East Manganese mine project.

Location
The project is located in the manganese-rich Hotazel, in the Northern Cape, South Africa.

Project Owner/s
Menar.

Project Description
East Manganese will be an opencast mine comprising a total reserve of 870 000 t of run-of-mine (RoM) and will produce and process 30 000 t a month of RoM. 

Products will include lumpy (85%) and fine-material (15%) manganese.

A dry crushing and screening plant will be operated on site, which will reduce water requirements and limit pressure on local water sources.

The life-of-mine is estimated at three years.
 
Potential Job Creation

Between 70  and 80 direct new jobs are expected to be created at the mining complex once peak production has been reached.

Net Present Value/Internal Rate of Return
Not stated.

Capital Expenditure
The project is estimated at R250-million.

Planned Start/End Date
The opening development of the boxcut was scheduled to begin in the second week of August.. 

Owing to the conical shape of the proposed pit, it will take about six to seven months to reach first ore, after which steady-state production will be achieved quickly. Physical mining activities will start once all operators have been operationally and medically certified. 

Latest Developments
Menar’s East Manganese project has been granted a mining right and water-use licence, which the firm says paves the way for mining operations to start soon.

Key Contracts, Suppliers and Consultants
None stated.
