Eastplats produces 1st chrome concentrate from Crocodile River plant

Eastern Platinum Ltd. said Dec. 18 that it started commissioning its newly constructed chrome plant at the Crocodile River platinum mine in South Africa, and the chrome circuit produced its first chrome concentrate.

The chrome processing circuit is reprocessing tailings from subsidiary Barplats Mines Pty. Ltd.'s Zandfontein UG2 project in the Crocodile River operation.

Commercial production is targeted in early 2019, with ramp-up to full commercial production expected in the second quarter of 2019.
