MTE Exhibitions are strutting their stuff in the Rustenburg area of the Bushveld Igneous Complex this week on the back of buoyant PGM prices.

With platinum, palladium and rhodium prices hitting record highs over the last year, mines in the rich platinum belt of South Africa have been enjoying an exceptional run with several operations recording record profits.

With mining companies in expansion mode and with mergers and acquisitions in the air, it is the perfect time for suppliers to take advantage of the bull market. The buoyant mood and confidence in the platinum sector are reflected in the number of exhibitors taking part in this week’s MTE Exhibition’s Mooinooi and Rustenburg shows on the Western Limb of the Bushveld Igneous Complex. MTE gets the show on the road tomorrow (11 May 2021) at the Mooinooi Golf Club between 13h00 and 17h00.

Mooinooi is between Rustenburg and Brits and makes up part of the North West’s platinum belt. Mines in the area do not only produce platinum but a significant amount of chrome is mined as well.

On Thursday (13 May 2021) MTE heads to Rustenburg where visitors will include decision makers from Sibanye Stillwater’s Marikana operations, Samancor’s Western Chrome Mines, Northam Platinum’s Eland mine and Tharisa Mineral’s Tharisa mine. Employees from Mitsubishi Corporation’s Hernic Ferrochrome smelter and Samancor’s TC smelter will also attend the event. MTE will ensure that all Covid-19 protocols are followed and that both exhibitors and suppliers enjoy the benefits of face-to-face interactions without compromising their health and safety.
