Saldanha Information

  • General 2015-05-10
    The port at Saldanha Bay is the only dedicated iron ore export facility in South Africa and is larger than the country’s other four major ports combined. Its proximity to Sishen Mine and Kolomela, linked by rail, makes it the gateway of choice for exporting seaborne iron ore to Kumba'’s international customers. Operating 24/7, the port has a loading capacity of around 8 000 tons an hour, with peaks up to 10 000 tons an hour. The ore quay at Saldanha has two berths where two ships of 350 000 DWT can simultaneously berth at the iron ore jetty.

  • Montero Evaluates Extensive Off-Shore Phosphate Deposits in South Africa 2015-12-01

    TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Dec. 1, 2015) - Montero Mining and Exploration Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:MON) ("Montero") has completed an initial review of geological data relating to extensive off-shore sedimentary phosphate deposits within the Greenflash Project area in South Africa. The Greenflash Project is the second phosphate asset being advanced with funding partner Ovation Capital ("Ovation") in South Africa. Ovation has committed to expenditures of roughly CDN $2.7 million to acquire a 10% interest in Montero's Duyker Eiland project. At the Greenflash Project, Ovation has agreed to co-fund due diligence with Montero, where, upon receiving a positive review, may elect to provide Montero 100% of the funding to outline a resource for equity participation in the project (see press release September 10, 2015). The Greenflash Project could potentially provide additional feedstock to a Fertilizer Plant envisaged to be developed in Saldanha Bay by Montero and Ovation.
