Future Prospects

The standardization of equipment at most of the above mines provide opportunities for continual product sales, maintenance and services for the life of the mine. The lifespans of some the above mines and power stations extend beyond 2040.

Other opportunities include the establishment of service centers located at strategic locations providing empowerment opportunities in line with the mining charter. These centers could be established and sold of as franchises or held an extension to the company.
