Short Project Title: Der Brochen Mine Amendment Project
   
Project Title: Integrated Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Process for  Anglo American Platinum – Rustenburg
Platinum Mines Limited’s Der Brochen Mine Amendment Project, Limpopo
   
Project Synopsis:

The Der Brochen Mine is a platinum project owned by Rustenburg Platinum Mines Limited (RPM), a wholly owned subsidiary of Anglo American Platinum (AAP). It is the intention of RPM to amend the Der Brochen Mine’s approved Environmental Management Programme (EMPr) and associated Environmental Authorisation (EA) as well as updating their existing Water Use Licence (WUL) to include the following:

  • The development of a buttress wall at the existing Helena Tailing Storage Facility (TSF) as well as the development of an additional filter press plant at the existing Mototolo Concentrator Plant, under emergency circumstances, as agreed by the Department of Mineral Resources (DMR) in October 2017;
  • The updated topsoil management plan of the Der Brochen Mine; and
  • The development and operation of the additional mining related infrastructure as part of the mine’s development strategy.
   
SRK Project Reference Number: 533247
   
Project Location: The Der Brochen Mine is located approximately 25 km south-west of the town of Steelpoort and 40 km west of Mashishing (Lydenburg), in the Limpopo Province.
The Der Brochen Amendment Project and associated proposed project related infrastructure will be located on the following farms:
  • Helena 6 JT – Remaining Extent and Portion 3;
  • Der Brochen 7 JT – Remaining Extent;
  • Mareesburg 8 JT – Portion 1 and Portion 7.
   
Status of the project: Before RPM may commence with the development of the additional mining related activities, the following environmental authorisations processes and licence amendment need to be undertaken in accordance with the relevant national legislation:
  • A Scoping and Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) for any project related Listed Activities stipulated in the National Environmental Management Act (Act No. 107 of 1998) (NEMA) and the National Environmental Management: Waste Act (Act No. 59 of 2008) (NEM:WA). The Der Brochen Mine’s existing EMPr will be amended in terms of the Mineral and Petroleum Resources Development Act (Act No. 28 of 2002) (MPRDA). The Scoping, EIA and amended EMPr will be submitted to Limpopo Province’s DMR for approval; and
  • An updated Integrated Water Use Licence (IWUL) for any project related water uses and accompanying Integrated Water and Waste Management Plan (IWWMP) under the National Water Act (Act No. 36 of 1998) (NWA), for submission and approval from the Department of Water and Sanitation (DWS).

The Scoping Report is now available for public review. All stakeholders are encouraged to comment on the Scoping Report by Monday, 04 March 2019, as your comments and suggestions on any aspect of the project will ultimately assist the relevant authorities to make an informed decision.

You are welcome to comment on the Scoping Report by:
