Convertor operations resume at Zondereinde mine

The management of the Zondereinde division of Northam advises that convertor operations have resumed at the division’s metallurgical plant with stockpiled material now being fed through the plant.

This follows on the announcement on 17 May 2010 advising of an incident at the plant and the shut-down of the converters.

Investigations into the cause of the incident are continuing in consultation with accredited institutions.

The impact on sales of metal during the current financial year will be minimal.
