What We Do Pan African and its subsidiaries are a South African based precious metals mining group which produces in excess of 200,000oz of gold and 8,000oz of PGM’s per annum.
The Company’s strategic focus is on the exploitation of high grade ore-bodies that yield high margins with a relatively low cost base.
Pan African has successfully grown profitable precious metal production in recent years via organic and acquisitive growth.
The purchase of Evander Gold Mines from Harrmony Gold effectively doubled gold production, whilst the commissioning of the Barberton Tailings Retreatment Plant added a further 20,000 to 25,000oz of low cost ounces to Barberton’s gold output.
The Group is currently unhedged and is able to fund all on-mine capital expenditure from internal cash flows generated by its operations.
The Group remains one of the lowest cash cost producers of gold and PGM’s in South Africa.
It has a strong balance sheet and also has a track record of providing a cash return to shareholders through an attractive annual dividend.
