The Company's activities are integrated; from the underground mining function, through to the concentrating, smelting and base metal recovery processes. Its primary products are the three main PGMs: platinum, palladium and rhodium. The primary consumers of platinum, palladium and rhodium are the motor-manufacturing and jewelry industries. Northam Chrome Proprietary Limited, Booysendal Platinum Proprietary Limited and Khumama Platinum Proprietary Limited are the subsidiaries of the Company.
