NPH - Northam Platinum Holdings
Northam is an independent, fully empowered, integrated platinum group metal (PGM) producer. Northam’s existing core producing business assets are Zondereinde and Booysendal (further details of which are set out below), and its primary products are the 3 main PGMs – platinum, palladium, rhodium – and gold (“4E”). Northam’s medium-term annual production target is to produce 1 million 4E ounces (“oz”) per annum.
The primary consumers of these PGMs are the automotive-manufacturing and jewellery industries. Other industrial uses range from chemical and electrical applications to the manufacturing of glass. PGMs are traded on international markets where the metal prices are determined by global supply and demand and are U.S. dollar denominated. Northam has no influence on the sales price of its metal and is essentially a price taker. The metal is sold in sponge or ingot form to customers in the U.S., Europe and Asia.
