Let's Talk About Mining for a Future
Pan African Resource 11 November 2021
At Pan African Resources our corporate mantra is Mining for a Future; but what do we actually mean by that?
The truth is that it outlines a series of values and behaviours that are core to our business and infuse every aspect of what we do. Because Pan African is a thoroughly modern and entrepreneurially minded company, as invested in our workforce and the communities they represent as we are in our shareholders.
We’re an uncompromisingly forward-focused organisation and we have future-proofed ourselves with innovative technologies, practices and values that are woven into every aspect of our operation. Which would not have been possible without levels of agility, flexibility, and responsiveness to a complex and rapidly shifting environment, that many more traditional players cannot match.Those are bold statements, so what are the proof points?
- A balanced mix of high-grade underground and low-cost remining operations contributes to a robust portfolio that has proven itself able to generate attractive returns through the cycle - even in a significant downturn
- An ability to capitalise on existing infrastructure to extract value from new orebodies gives rise to a low capital investment per ounce.
- We are uniquely positioned in South Africa as a mid-tier gold miner, enabling us to develop opportunities that are too small for the major miners and too large for the smaller, less well-capitalised and resourced juniors.
- Our business imperatives compel us to prioritise the quality of ounces over quantity, giving rise to sector leading safety rates, margins and, ultimately, superior returns on capital. This differentiates us as an investment proposition in the mid-tier gold mining sector.
What does all this add up to? Pan African is an innovative, safe, long-life and high-margin gold producer, with very attractive short-term growth prospects. But we are NOT your typical mining company.
We’ve proven ourselves comfortable challenging the conventional wisdom time and time again, to deliver amazing returns and find opportunities where others see only problems.
All of which adds up to the words we started with: Mining for a Future.
There are many more stories being written at Pan African Resources that we are just starting to tell. Our enviable safety record, our community-building projects, sustainability and environmental restoration initiatives and our effective response to Covid-19 are just a few.
The first two episodes of a video series called Digging Deep are available on our website to start to unpack some of these stories. We look forward to sharing more in the future.https://www.panafricanresources.com/digging-deep-episode-1/
