Platinum mine tailings sampling

We carried out our fifth set of tailings sampling in May 2019, at an Anglo American platinum mine in South Africa. Samples included (a) large bulk samples from surface for calibration chamber testing, (b) block samples from surface for various laboratory element tests, and (c) samples from depth adjacent to cone penetration test locations.

Thanks to Anglo American, SRK and Osimo for their support.

Below are some pictures of the works.
