Redefining a new era of copper mining in South Africa

We have heard the call of our President:

Thuma Mina - We want to lend a hand!

Kick-starting the next generation of community owned mines

Our intent is to lend a hand and uplift our communities through sharing some of the wealth our mining assets will unlock
SHiP will create two community companies that will own 70% of two copper ore bodies that will be capitalized by SHiP and be taken to mine-ready stage
SHiP will together with its funding partners assist with capital to build the projects
The community will own these assets from day one
Processing capacity will be provided by SHiP as part of a centralized processing complex and be integrated with the cluster mining model
SHiP will effectively be transferring 70% of 4.5Mt @ 1,7% Cu or 76,500 tons of copper or almost US$350 million worth of contained copper into the hands of the local community
