Tshipi Manganese Mine - Overview
Tshipi é Ntle Manganese Mining (Pty) Ltd (Tshipi) operates the Tshipi Borwa mine, an open pit manganese mine in the Kalahari Manganese Field (KMF) located in the Northern Cape of South Africa.
Approximately 80% of world's known economic manganese resources are contained in the Kalahari manganese field in South Africa. The open-cut mining operation is located just north of Sishen and is adjacent to South 32's large open-cut Mamatwan mine that has been operating for decades.
Jupiter's Tshipi manganese ore is shipped to multiple customers around the world and based on Jupiter's sales experience has been a highly sought-after product in the market place.
The Tshipi Mine exported 3.34 million tonnes of manganese ore in FY18 and production has been steadily growing over recent years. It has the flexibility to scale production between 3.0 - 3.6Mtpa.
Tshipi continues to be one of the largest and lowest cost manganese exporters globally. Strong cash margins throughout the cycle and further cost reductions are being targeted.
Tshipi's transport infrastructure is considered one of the best in the entire Kalahari manganese field. Tshipi has the potential to load trains faster than any manganese operation in South Africa.
