Stone Quarrying, Clay and Sandpits & Mining of Phosphates in South Africa 2019 - ResearchAndMarkets.com

DUBLIN--()--The "Stone Quarrying, Clay and Sandpits, and Mining of Phosphates in South Africa 2019" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

Stone Quarrying, Clay and Sandpits, and Mining of Phosphates:

Low activity levels in the construction sector and rising input costs are providing challenges for the quarrying and the phosphate rock mining sectors. The construction sector, on which the industry relies, continues to struggle, largely due to low government spending on infrastructure, while some industry operations have experienced community unrest. Infrastructure projects are increasingly being packaged into smaller parts to allow emerging construction companies to take part in infrastructure development, leading some quarrying and phosphate companies to adapt their business models. South Africa's quarrying sector consists of a large number of players, including global cement producers like LafargeHolcim, major South African companies like PPC, and many smaller producers.

Phosphate Rock Developments:

The mining of phosphate rock is carried out by one large company, Foskor, and one smaller producer, Gecko Fert, while Kropz is developing a new mine. Foskor increased its production of phosphate rock concentrate but it continues to make losses and its board is reviewing its underperforming operations to develop a turnaround plan which may include it being modernised and possibly downscaled. Kropz, which has made a significant investment in the development of its Elandsfontein mine and processing facility on the West Coast, has delayed commissioning.
