It harbors a valuable underground deposit consisting of thick mineralization of platinum-group metals, nickel, copper, and gold.
This particular project stands out as it marks the pioneering utilization of Peikko products and solutions within the South African mining industry.
The initial advantage lies in the incorporation of Peikko Anchor Bolts and Column Shoes into precast concrete planks, which serve as permanent formwork and seamlessly connect with the reinforced concrete cavity infill. By employing this approach, the project significantly minimizes the need for temporary support during the construction phase.
Another notable benefit is the ease and swiftness of installing the precast planks on-site, allowing for efficient progress. In comparison to the conventional cast-in-situ construction method, Peikko's solution saves a substantial amount of time, estimated to be around 8 months. Additionally, the projected cost savings for this period are estimated to be Euro 8 million.
