Dried and bagged
The chrome is dried and bagged at the Rand York processing plant at Bleskop, close to Rustenburg. All bags are electronically weighed and recorded. Testing of AFS and turbidity is done at the plant on a daily basis and compared with results obtained from the mines' production reports.
Material can also be loaded wet bulk into containers.
Packing of these shipments takes place at our Pretoria, Johannesburg or Durban warehouses, depending on the quantities and the location of the mines.
Containers are sampled, checked, weighed and sealed by independent surveyors, ie. SGS or Alex Stewart, at these different sites where loading takes place.
VIA RICHARDS BAY
Material is also supplied in wet bulk and shipped from Richards Bay. Most of the wet bulk shipments via Richards Bay are transported by rail into the port.
