Dow Super and Dhow Nominees had held 3.75 million performance shares.
The Performance Shares had converted on a one to one basis into fully paid shares upon a Mining Right being granted in relation to the Moabsvelden project, which occurred on 29 May 2013.
Moabsvelden will be one of the largest new mines located in the vital Witbank coal basin when developed, and importantly its close proximity to Johannesburg is an advantage over other mines - giving it access to industrial/inland market in South Africa.
A plus for Moabsvelden is that it will be entirely open cast, and has a low stripping ratio, with a mine life in excess of 14 years. Production is targeted for mid-2014.
