"The Hernic operation has progressed from commissioning to a fully operational business unit and has demonstrated its capability of achieving the expected design parameters,” said Jubilee chief executive Leon Coetzer.

He added that production numbers for July at Hernic are already similar to the total PGM production for the year, highlighting the rate of the ramp up.

“With commissioning concluded we continue to strive for operational excellence through continued optimisation of operational efficiencies.”

And he hinted there might be further deals on the horizon.

“We are currently reviewing a number of business opportunities both in South Africa and abroad. A number of these opportunities offer the potential to continue the Company's transformation process."
