Africa-focused explorer and project developer Ivanhoe Mines is confident that its Limpopo-based Platreef mine, which is expected to produce 12-million tonnes a year, will be the largest platinum group metals (PGMs) mine in the world “by a massive margin”. Addressing conference delegates at the 2016 Investing in African Mining Indaba, in Cape Town, executive chairperson and founder Robert Friedland said the mine would start operations in 2019 and would be continuously expanded in a series of stages until it is the largest platinum/palladium mine globally.
