:: GRD Minproc Awarded Contract for Smokey Hills PGM Project

Platinum Australia Limited has advised that leading international engineer GRD Minproc Limited has been chosen to carry out the engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) contract on the US$40.5m Smokey Hills PGM Project in South Africa.

GRD Minproc, a subsidiary of GRD Limited, will design and build a processing plant and related infrastructure. The project is located in the Limpopo Province, north of Johannesburg, and will produce 4E PGM (Platinum Group Metal).

GRD Limited Chief Executive Cliff Lawrenson said the award of the Smokey Hills contract was further evidence of GRD Minproc’s growing presence and reputation in the African resources sector. “We offer the market technical expertise in diverse commodities, backed up with quality project delivery," Mr Lawrenson said. “We have been involved in Smokey Hills since the study phase and the award of the EPCM contract reinforces our philosophy of conception to operation."

In 2007, GRD Minproc has been awarded contracts for the following African projects:

  • Tenke Fungurume Copper/Cobalt Project in the Democratic Republic of Congo for Freeport-McMoran Copper and Gold Inc.
