Tronox Coastal Setback Prospecting BA

Short Project Title: Tronox Coastal Setback Prospecting BA
   
Project Title: Basic Assessment Process for the Proposed Prospecting in the Coastal Setback at Namakwa Sands Mine, Brand-se-Baai
   
Project Synopsis: Tronox Mineral Sands (Pty) (Ltd) (Tronox NS) operates a heavy minerals mining business which includes the Namakwa Sands Mine (“the Mine”) and the Mineral Separation Plant (MSP) near Koekenaap, both north of Vredendal, on the Western Cape coast.

The Coastal Setback (“the Setback”) is a ~300 m wide zone extending inland of the High Water Mark at the Mine, and is located within the approved Mining Right Area (MRA). While the approved MRA includes the Setback, Tronox NS is not authorised to prospect or mine in this area since Tronox NS’s Environmental Management Programmes (EMPrs) exclude these activities here. Tronox NS is now proposing to conduct prospecting in the Setback to determine the level of mineralisation of the resource (“the project”).

Tronox NS require Environmental Authorisation (EA) in terms of the National Environmental Management Act 107 of 1998 (NEMA), an amendment to their approved EMPrs in terms of the Mineral and Petroleum Resources Development Act 28 of 2002 (MPRDA) and heritage approval in terms of the National Heritage Resources Act 25 of 1999 (NHRA) in order to proceed with the project. SRK Consulting (South Africa) Pty Ltd (SRK) has been appointed to undertake the required Basic Assessment (BA) process to inform these applications.
