This has been subsequently replaced with NPH following the listing of Northam Holdings in a share for share exchange.
Our three main products mined are platinum, palladium and rhodium and are consumed by industries such as motor manufacturing, jewellery and other industrial sectors. Our activities are integrated throughout the full value stream, from underground mining, through concentrating, smelting and base metal removal to final saleable metal. Precious metal refining is outsourced. Since inception, Northam’s precious metals were refined by Heraeus Deutschland GmbH & Co KG (Heraeus) in Germany, however with the increase in our production base and refining capacity, the group has recently contracted Johnson Matthey PLC as a second precious metal refiner.
The growth of our business ensures meaningful employment for our people. We create opportunities for training and skills development both for employees and the communities where we operate. At Northam, we believe in the positive impact of mining not only for our investors but for our communities, our environment and our people.
