‘The Big One’ in Zulu – Elikhulu, Pan African’s flagship operation exceeded expectations by being built within budget, commissioned ahead of schedule and reaching steady state production within two years.
The plant processes 1.2Mt of historic tailings per month from the three existing slimes dams at Kinross, Leslie/Bracken and Winkelhaak. Tailings reprocessing will result in the residues being re-deposed to a single tailings storage facility site, which will reduce our ecological footprint.
This operation consists of a technologically advanced, automated plant with a minimal labour requirement. Elikhulu is testament to our team’s ability to conceptualise, plan and complete substantial growth projects ahead of time and within budget.
