Name of the Project
East Manganese mine project.

Location
In the manganese-rich Hotazel, in the Northern Cape, South Africa.

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.

Development of the project started in September 2020, with first production expected in July 2021.
