Implats performance up, six die

The Implats group on Thursday delivered an improved performance at most operations for the half-year ended December 31, but regrettably mourns the loss of six employees through work-related incidents. Gross platinum in concentrate production for the group, headed by CEO Nico Muller, increased by 13.3%, supported by a 7.4% increase in run-of-mine tonnes milled and higher deliveries from third-party toll refining customers.
