Leading local innovation at the heart of gold and PGM miner’s mechanization drive

CMTI Group’s state-of-the-art patented technology is a critical component of Sibanye Resources’ drive to mechanize its South African gold and platinum-group metal (PGM) operations — a transition that will lead to safer mining, while extending the life of operations, bolstering productivity levels and unlocking significant value for shareholders.
