OUR MINERAL RESOURCES AND RESERVES
RBPLAT’S OPERATIONS LIE ON THE WESTERN LIMB OF THE BUSHVELD IGNEOUS COMPLEX, IMMEDIATELY SOUTH OF THE PILANESBERG COMPLEX
Rocks of the lower, critical and main zones of the Rustenburg Layered Suite (RLS) underlie our operations, apart from a very small portion of the northern boundary area where rocks of the Pilanesberg Complex occur.
RBPlat’s mining operations, on the farms Boschkoppie, Styldrift and Frischgewaagd, are exploiting the two primary economically favourable platinum group metal stratigraphic horizons of the Western Bushveld Complex, the Merensky Reef and the UG2 Reef.
Both reef horizons are enriched with base metal sulphides and platinum group metals of which the Merensky Reef historically has been the most important platinum producing layer in the Western Bushveld Complex.
RBPlat has a 67% attributable interest in the resources and reserves, consisting of the Merensky and UG2 reefs underlying the Boschkoppie and Styldrift farms and a specific portion of Frischgewaagd.
