Zimbabwe's largest platinum producer, Zimplats has continued to excel from a health, safety and production perspective and the bankable feasibility work for the development of portal 6 has been completed.
Zimplats reported zero lost time injuries for the quarter and mill throughput increased by 5.5% to 1.70 million tonnes, compared to 1.61 million tonnes in the prior corresponding period, largely as a result of increased production from the South open pit and Bimha Mine. Platinum in matte production consequently increased by 3.6% to 68 400 ounces, compared to 66 000 ounces in the prior corresponding period a year ago.
Meanwhile, Mimosa, a joint ventuire between Implats and Aquarius, reported zero lost time injuries and tonnes milled during the period increased by 2.7% to 690 000 tonnes, compared to 672 000 tonnes in the previous comparable quarter. Platinum production in concentrate of 30 500 ounces was largely unchanged from the prior comparable period.
