"The Section 11 allows Afarak to start mining and to secure an own-supply of high-quality ore for our smelter in Mogale,” explained Guy Konsbruck, Afarak’s chief executive officer.

“Thanks to the ore in Zeerust, Mogale will now be the only South African smelter capable of producing high carbon ferrochrome. Afarak will be consolidating its position as a vertically-integrated producer with a diversified range of products," he noted.
