Name of the Project
Mine Waste Solutions extension project.

Location
Stilfontein/Orkney area, in the North West, in South Africa.

Project Owner/s
Harmony Gold Mining Company.

Project Description
Mine Waste Solutions was acquired by Harmony Gold in October 2020 and is a gold reclamation operation that treats 2.2-million tonnes a month from historical tailings facilities through the Mine Waste Solution plant.

Residue is deposited on the existing Kareerand tailings storage facility; however, this facility is running out of tailings deposition capacity.

The project involves extending the existing deposition site to allow for the full development of Harmony’s tailings resource in the region; it is expected to produce about 100 000 oz/y of gold and extend the operation’s life-of-mine by 16 years.
