Sibanye-Stillwater is a leading international precious metals mining company, with a diverse portfolio of platinum group metal (PGM) operations in the United States and Southern Africa, gold operations and projects in South Africa, and copper, gold and PGM exploration properties in North and South America.
More recently, Sibanye-Stillwater has advanced its global diversification strategy to encompass the battery metal space by investing in a lithium hydroxide project in Finland. With the acquisition of a 30% shareholding in Keliber Oy in February 2021, Sibanye-Stillwater now has a substantial interest in the Keliber lithium project currently in development phase in the Kaustinen region of Finland.
Established in 2013, the Group has grown and diversified into one of the world’s largest primary producers of platinum, palladium and rhodium and is also a top tier gold producer, ranking third globally on a gold-equivalent basis. It also produces other PGMs, such as iridium and ruthenium, and chrome copper and nickel as by-products.
Not only does the Group mine PGMs, it is also the world’s leading global recycler and processor of spent PGM catalytic converter materials. In 2020, 840,000 oz of our total PGM output was recycled at our Columbus metallurgical business in Montana, in the most environmentally friendly manner possible.
