DRDGOLD Limited (DRDGOLD) is a mid-tier, unhedged gold producer focused on consolidating its position as a world leader in the recovery of gold through the retreatment of surface tailings by extracting as much gold as possible from its 11Moz surface resource.
In FY2012 the company employed 792 people – as well as specialist contractors – including Fraser Alexander Tailings, experts in tailings recovery and tailings dam management. Some 600 people are deployed by Fraser Alexander to manage Ergo’s reclamations and tailings sites.
Ergo was established to recover and treat the 186Mt Elsburg resource on the eastern Witwatersrand. Rationalisation, and the construction of a pipeline, has made it possible for tailings on the central and western Witwatersrand to be brought to account in a more streamlined operation in future
DRDGOLD is engaged in two major exploration programmes:
ERPM Exts 1 and 2, a R37-million three-year exploration project to further define the resources of the East Rand Proprietary Mines Limited (ERPM).
Chizim Gold, a rapidly progressing exploration project in Zimbabwe’s greenstone gold mining belt with joint venture (JV) partner Chizim Investments.
EBDA, the Ergo Business Development Academy, was established by Ergo Mining (Pty) Limited to equip South Africans to pioneer enterprise development and, in doing so, to help uplift their communities. It is DRDGOLD’s most significant local economic development project to date.
