About the company Samancor

In the Western belt, Samancor Chrome’s mines include Millsell and Mooinooi (and we are in the process of establishing a third underground mine), stretching over a distance of 50 kilometers between Rustenburg and Brits in the North West Province.

Western Chrome Mines has a capacity of 2.0 million tons of run of mine ore. The main products of the mines are metallurgical and chemical concentrates, with some foundry grades.

Two underground mining methods are employed at the Samancor Chrome mines, namely conventional scraper mining and trackless mechanised mining.

The former method involves the ore being drilled and blasted, then scraped mechanically to loading points from where it is transported to shaft tips by locomotives and hoppers. From here it is hoisted to surface by conveyor belts installed in the inclined shafts.
