Amplats to return to 90% production by end-2020
The world number two PGMs supplier ramps up mines slowly after hard lockdown in March
The world number two platinum group metals (PGM) supplier Anglo American Platinum (Amplats) will have its mines back to about 90% of production before the end of the year as it returns to operations with the easing of SA’s Covid-19 lockdown.
The government ordered a hard shutdown of the economy on March 27, bringing mines, industries and businesses to a halt. It has since eased lockdown conditions and mines started to return to full operations since May.
