Assmang is jointly controlled by Assore Limited and African Rainbow Minerals which each holds 50% share capital and voting rights of the Company.
The company mines manganese ore at Black Rock, Iron Ore at Khumani and Beeshoek Mines in the Northern Cape. The Company also produces Manganese alloys at Cato Ridge works.
The bulk of the Groups’ production is exported to the Far East, Europe, India and the United States of America.
Assmang Black Rock Mine is situated in the Kalahari Manganese Field which contains around 80% of the world’s known high-grade Manganese resource.
Black Rock Mine Operations currently employs ±2500 permanent staff and ±3500 contractors.
Manganese ore mining operations were extended and today include 3 underground mining complexes:
- Gloria (commissioned in 1975) and producing medium grade carbonated ore
- Nchwaning 2 and Nchwaning 3 (commissioned in 1981 and 2004 respectively) and producing high-grade oxide ore
In February 2014, the Black Rock Expansion Project was commissioned to increase the output of high-grade manganese ore products. This project aims to ensure the mine’s sustainable longevity. A total of R6.7bn will be invested to make this expansion possible.
