Dual-listed Platinum Group Metals (PTM) is considering a transition to a hybrid mining method at its Maseve mine, in the North West province, as it embarks on a restructure to create a more sustainable operating future. The proposed change in the primary mining method will result in a move away from the current higher-volume, mechanised bord-and-pillar mining method to a process involving mechanised access drives using the mine’s current equipment, as well as conventional manual methods for stoping.
