Our initiatives include:

  • Supporting several non-profit organisations who care for those in need.
  • The establishment of a community pre-school and crèche providing schooling and meals for up to 30 children
  • Ongoing investment in both flora and fauna rehabilitation of the Union Mine area in Limpopo Province. This includes addressing legacy issues prior to Micronized acquiring the current mining area.
