In addition, the Department of Mineral Resources would also be looking at initiatives to lower the cost of doing business, including commodity linked electricity pricing, rail and port costs, as well as ramping-up investments by the State into rail and port capacity. Mantashe identified the high cost of electricity as a factor that was inhibiting growth and forcing some South African chrome and manganese mining companies to add value to the metals in countries that provided cheaper electricity. If the high electricity price were dealt with, more of this raw material could be beneficiated in South Africa.
Can South Africa’s new leader reinvigorate its battered mining sector?
The Minister revealed the government was considering the introduction of commodity price-linked power pricing and a dedicated manganese ore rail line from the Northern Cape to the Port of Saldanha. Analysts said the rebalancing of Canada's flagship index underlined the challenge to energy companies in attracting investment amid concerns about lack of new oil pipeline capacity and a glut of inexpensive North American natural gas.
