PanEx Resources and members of the PanEx team have a long history of the discovery and development of mining projects spanning a wide range of commodities. These include gold and the platinum group metals, diamonds (kimberlite and alluvial), base metals, vanadium and chromium, tin, rare earth elements, coal and heavy mineral sands among others. Country experience includes most countries in Africa as well as a number in Europe, Asia, Middle East, North and South America and Australasia.
Project successes include the Buzwagi , Tulawana and Golden Ridge Gold Mines in Tanzania, the Phosiri platinum deposit in South Africa – the largest known undeveloped platinum deposit – and the Otjihase Copper Mine in Namibia. Marsfontein Diamond Mine in South Africa, discovered in 1997, proved to be the highest value per ton kimberlite ever found. Other notable successes include the Taaiboschlaagte Colliery and the Rhovan Vanadium Mine in South Africa and the Zebediela nickel-platinum deposit, also in South Africa. Particularly successful has been the identification and development of heavy mineral sands deposits. These include the Hillendale and Fairbreeze mines in South Africa and the Kwale Rutile Zircon Mine in Kenya. Another discovery, the Corridor Sands project in Mozambique is the world’s largest ilmenite deposit.
PanEx continues to develop new mining ventures and is currently working on the evaluation of gold and base metal projects in southern Europe as well as a number of new discoveries in Africa.
