MTE at the heart of the mine.

Modikwa mine is situated along the border between the Mpumalanga and Limpopo provinces and is 450m deep underground with three decline shafts and a concentrator. African Rainbow Minerals (ARM) owns 50% of the mine while a 17% stake in ARM mining consortium is held by two Section 21 companies representing communities around Modikwa.

Modikwa mine is a large underground mine located in the north-eastern part of South Afric a, northwest of Burgersfort, in one of South Africa’s platinum provinces, Limpopo. Modikwa represents one of the largest platinum reserves in South Africa, with estimated reserves topping 200 million tonnes (Mt) of ore grading 2g/t platinum, 1.87g/t palladium and minor grades of gold, rhodium, ruthenium and iridium. The mine has reserves of 13.8 million ounces (Moz) of platinum and 12.9Moz of palladium and it produces around 120 000oz of platinum a year and 110 000oz of palladium a year.

Exhibitors should include companies that supply equipment or products to the platinum mining industry mines or that supply equipment or products that can be used in the platinum mining process. Modikwa is part of southern Africa’s world-famous platinum belt so, if you’re involved in that business, then this is the expo for you.

Cullinan 450
Rock breaker breaking ore on top of a grizzly underground at Cullinan.

Cullinan is situated 30km east of Pretoria in Gauteng, South Africa. The small town is located along the diamond route, and is named after diamond magnate Sir Thomas Cullinan.

Cullinan mine is owned by Petra Diamonds and is situated in the Gauteng province of South Africa. The site of the open-pit mine is located about 40km east of Pretoria.

In 1905, the largest rough gem diamond was found in Cullinan. The discovery of this diamond—which had 3 106 carats— put Cullinan mine on the global map as a renowned source of large, high‑quality gem diamonds. This includes type II stones and it is a source of very rare blue diamonds.

Cullinan mine has an expected life span of about 50 years and contains a world-class diamond resource of194 metric carats (Mcts). The mine has undertaken an expansion programme that is expected to increase annual production from 0.7Mcts in 2016 to 2.2Mcts in 2019.

Exhibitors we would like to see include companies that supply equipment or products to the diamond mines
or that supply equipment or products that can be used in the diamond mining process. Cullinan is a diamond
mining area so, if you’re involved in that business, then this is the expo for you.

lethlakane
The Letlhakane diamond mine, one of three mines operated by Debswana.

Letlhakane, a village in the central district of Botswana, just south of Mmatshumo, is within 15 to 20km of four of Botswana’s most profitable diamond mines. Three of the mines – Letlhakane mine in the south-east, Orapa in the north-west and Damtshaa in the north – are operated by Debswana, a company jointly-owned by the Botswanan government and De Beers, one of the biggest diamond-mining companies in the world.

The fourth mine, Karowe diamond mine south-west of Letlhakane, is operated by Boteti Mining, which is owned by Canada’s Lucara Diamonds. Botswana is the world's largest producer of diamonds and, by carefully managing their diamond reserves, Botswana has managed to become one of the most stable and wealthiest countries, especially in terms of human development and quality of life, in sub-Saharan Africa.

Exhibitors should include companies that supply equipment or products to the diamond mining industry mines or that supply equipment or products that can be used in the diamonds process. Botswana is one of the world’s biggest diamond-producing countries, so if you’re involved in that business, then this is the expo for you.

Palapye 001
The town of Palapye, Botswana.

Palapye is a large town in Botswana situated about half way between Francistown and Gaborone. Over the years its position has made it a convenient stop over on one of southern Africa's principal north to south rail and road routes.

In 1997 Palapye was the fastest-growing village in Africa and was expected to expand its population from 30 000 to 180 000.

The Morupule Colliery Coal Mine (MCM) is located here, which supplies Morupule Power Station Botswana's principal domestic source of electricity. The power station has undertaken an expansion project to increase its generation capacity to meet the country's increasing demand for electricity.
The history of coal discovery in Botswana goes back to the early 1930s when a major coal seam was discovered through sinking of boreholes. While digging boreholes, coal seams were found in the common coal bearing rocks in Africa through the Ecca series of the Karoo system. The Morupule area is underlain by Karoo sedimentary rocks which form the eastern margin of the major Karoo basin developed to the West of Morupule. These sedimentary rocks consist of shales, coals and sandstones of the middle and lower Ecca.

The profile of Botswana’s energy supply is like most developing countries, particularly the Southern African Development Community (SADC) countries, and is dominated by fuelwood which contributes 58% to the total primary energy supplied. Morupule is a mine-mouth power station situated near Palapye in the Central District of Botswana and the coal is supplied by Morupule Colliery.
Currently, it is estimated that Morupule power station produces 30% of the country’s electrical energy requirements. In 2003, the power station commissioned a generation expansion feasibility study due to diminishing surplus generation capacity facing the southern African region. The feasibility study recommended that six 100MW units be installed in progressive stages: 400MW immediately between 2009 and 2010; 100MW in 2018; and 100MW in 2023.

According to the 2007 Survey of Energy Resources, Botswana has massive coal reserves in the eastern part of the country with 40 million tons of proven recoverable reserves. The untapped reserves are in the greater Morupule fields of eastern Botswana. The Anglo- American Corporation (AAC) was given a mining lease in 1966 and developed a colliery at the Morupule coalfield, which opened in 1973.

Exhibitors should include companies that supply equipment or products to the coal mines or power stations or that supply equipment or products that can be used in the coal mining or power generating process. Palapye is a coal mining and power station area, if you’re involved in that business, then this is the expo for you!

MTE team getting ready for the exhibition in Swartklip.

Union mine is in the Rustenburg district, 15km west of the Northam town in Limpopo province and North West Province of South Africa. The mine contains platinum group metals (PGMs) and operates under a mining right that covers a total of 119km2 in the north-western section of the Bushveld Igneous Complex (BIC), which is the richest source of PGM. The life of Union Mine extends to 2028.

Union mine consists of three vertical shafts and three decline systems, known as 4B, 4 South and 3 South. The vertical shafts include the Richard Shaft, the Spud Shaft and the Ivan Shaft. Union Mine uses underground mining method and two-thirds of underground mining is done through conventional breast stoping method with strike pillars, while hybrid mining is carried out at the declines. The mine used to be owned by Anglo American Platinum, but has since been bought by Siyanda Resources. Siyanda has entered into an agreement to sell concentrate produced by Union for the next seven years to Anglo American Platinum.

Dwaalboom, in the North West Province, is the home of a production facility for cement manufacturer PPC. The facility recently went through upgrades to its cooler on one of the kiln lines. The upgrades have led to a prominent improvement in production capacity and the reliability of the production unit, enabling the facility to attain higher annual clinker production and improved thermal efficiency of the clinker line.

Exhibitors we would like to see include those involved with vibrating screens, conveyor systems, HDPE piping, motors, mill liners, crushers, access systems, water treatment, hard wearing materials for shoots, belting, jaw crushers, pumps, refractories, controls and instrumentation and actuators and valves.
