The Kookfontein Chrome Project is located on the Western limb of the Bushveld Igneous Complex (BIC) with the chromitite mineralisation concentrated in the Lower Critical Zone and the Upper Critical Zone of the Rustenburg Layered Suite.
The location coincides with the Kookfontein “upfold” which forms the boundary zone between what is known as the Rustenburg sector and the Boshoek sector of the Western Lobe. LG and MG chromitites are well developed in the Boshoek sector whereas only MG group chromites are developed between Kookfontein and Rustenburg, as the Upper Critical Zone lies directly onto the floor quartzites in this area.
Together the conceptual geological and mining studies completed in 2016 and 2019 support the confirmation of economically viable Chromite seams on the property. More specifically the MG’s, UG2 and considerable portion of the UG1 was found to be mineable via open pit methods.
