Tharisa entering multi-project PGM-chrome growth phase

Platinum group metals (PGMs) and chrome co-producer Tharisa Minerals, which on Tuesday forecast a global chrome ore deficit of up to a million tonnes in the short to medium term, on Wednesday published the details of its Vision 2020 growth thrust. The strategic vision is aimed at ensuring that the JSE-listed mining company delivers 5.9-million tonnes of run-of-mine (RoM) material a year, 200 000 oz/y of PGMs and two-million tonnes a year of chrome concentrates by 2020.
