Operations

Chrome

Over the last 5 years, we have seen enormous growth and today have 8 individual chrome modules operating in South Africa with a chrome capacity exceeding 1 450 000 tonnes per annum of chrome concentrate. We are looking to expand that to 10 modules which would make Jubilee one of the world’s largest chrome concentrate producers.

Chrome Strategy

We have pioneered several industry-leading technologies in delivering on our chrome strategy. Our chrome production guidance of 1.45 million tonnes per annum for FY24 comprises approximately: 67% from tolling chrome concentrates and 33% from own-sourced chrome concentrates. We are targeting 2 million tonnes of chrome concentrates per annum in the future which would comprise: 58% tolling chrome concentrates and 42% own-sourced chrome concentrates. We have created a platform for growth and allowed for rapid expansion of our operational footprint.

What is chrome used for?

Chromite is a brown to black, iron – chromium oxide. Globally the world produces ~30Mt/yr of chromite, half of which is produced in South Africa (which hosts 75% of the world’s resources) with half again exported as a raw material to China to produce Ferrochrome which is the feedstock to produce stainless steel and other speciality alloys.
