Sishen Iron Ore Mine (SW Kathu)

Sishen represents one of the largest iron ore reserves in South Africa and in the world having estimated reserves of 2.43 billion tonnes of ore grading 58.6% iron metal.

The Sishen mine was opened in 1947, and produced 30.9 million tonnes of iron ore in 2013. It is one of the largest open-pit mines producing iron ore in the world.

The Sishen mine employs the open-pit mining method involving drill and blast. The mined ore is trucked to the nearby beneficiation plant.

The mine uses a fleet of P101-4100 shovels and 960 trucks. Strong performance of the 2,800 shovel fleet in 2019 allowed the mine to exceed equipment efficiency targets.
