LimeCor is the industrial minerals and Lime division of Afrimat Limited, a leading open-pit mining company, listed on the “Construction & Building Material” sector of the main board of the JSE Limited.
Afrimat was founded as a result of the merger of Lancaster Quarries and Prima Klipbrekers, and was listed on the JSE on 7 November 2006. Having achieved substantial organic and in-organic growth since inception, Afrimat positioned itself well for entry into the metallurgical and industrial minerals market, spearheaded by the acquisition of the Glen Douglas dolomite mine in Henley on Klip in 2010. Glen Douglas is uniquely positioned to supply customers in the southern parts of Johannesburg and the north of the Free State, with a formidable presence in the Vaal area as well.
Afrimat went on to acquire a 50.7% stake in resources group Infrasors Holdings Limited in March 2013. Infrasors is a supplier of metallurgical and construction dolomite, metallurgical limestone, stone dust and graded alluvial silica. The Infrasors acquisition has further expanded Afrimat’s foothold in the Industrial Minerals sector, as well as improved its geographical reach within Gauteng, Limpopo, Mpumulanga and KwaZulu Natal.
Infrasors’ mining assets include Lyttelton Centurion Mine, Marble Hall Mine, Delf Sand Mine and Delf Silica Coastal (a joint venture geared towards the production of quality graded alluvial silica on the North Coast of Durban, Kwa-Zulu Natal).
LimeCor was established with the objective to effectively distribute and market all of the industrial mineral and Lime resources from our various operations.
Our Agricultural Lime strategy is to emphasise the value of Calcium and Magnesium in obtaining maximum crop yield.
Afrimat adopts a broad-based approach to social responsibility, and is committed to expenditure and action in terms of the Social and Labour Plans (SLPs) as prescribed by the Department of Mineral Resources (DMR) for the broader mining industry. This is done with the support of relevant stakeholders in the mining areas, such as the local municipalities, traditional leaders, education department, employees and other local businesses.
In line with regulations of the Department of Mineral Resources, Afrimat is committed to sustainable development and protection of the environment. The group manages its environmental footprint with Environmental Management Programmes (EMPs). These include conducting business operations in such a manner as to eliminate potential dust emissions, decrease noise pollution and incorporate recycling. The group therefore carefully monitors national and international regulatory guidelines and developments.
