The new R1.7-billion Nokeng fluorspar mine in Gauteng, the development of which got under way last month, is expected to lead in terms of production volume and quality, and to rank “in the bottom cost quartile when it reaches full production in 24 months”, says SepFluor CEO Rob Wagner. Speaking at a media briefing in Johannesburg on Tuesday, Wagner highlighted the size of Nokeng’s orebody, which has a 12.2-million-tonne reserve, compliant with the South African Code for the Reporting of Exploration Results, Mineral Resources and Mineral Reserves.
