The bulk of the plant's production comes from the two underground sources (Tau Lekoa and Buffels), with low grade waste rock material being used as grinding medium which has resulted in significant costs savings compared to the previous usage of steel balls. Uranium occurs in conjunction with the gold in the conglomerate reef, but is not currently being extracted.
The plant is a carbon-in-pulp (CIP) plant with plant capacity of around 180,000 tonnes of ore a month. The operation's two uranium plants have long since been decommissioned and demolished.
