The initial phase of the Zandfontein underground operations at TSX-V- and JSE-listed Eastern Platinum's (Eastplats') flagship Crocodile River mine, in South Africa's Bushveld Complex, is now fully operational.

"It is my pleasure to announce that the soft restart of the Zandfontein underground operations is complete and fully operational.

“We can now begin to ramp up underground mining efforts and bring run-of-mine (RoM) material to the surface, where we will begin the first batch of RoM processing in the second quarter," comments Eastplats CEO Wanjin Yang.

The company plans to achieve a mining run rate of 40 000 t a month by the end of this year and to process up to 235 000 t of ore from underground production this year.
