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.

We are the world’s largest primary producer of platinum, the second largest primary producer of palladium and a top tier gold producer, ranking third globally, on a gold-equivalent basis, as well as a significant producer of rhodium and other PGMs and associated minerals such as chrome. We are also the globally leading recycler and processor of spent PGM catalytic converter materials.

A Closer Look

  • PGMs & gold

    PGMs are unique precious metals used in a wide variety of applications, including automobile catalysts, jewelry, fuel cells, hydrogen purification and electronics. Together, in 2018 autocatalytic converters and jewelry accounted for around 69% of platinum and palladium demand; autocatalysts alone accounted for 40% of platinum demand and 85% of palladium demand.

    PGMs are vital to a cleaner atmosphere, since palladium, platinum and rhodium are essential components in catalytic converters that reduce harmful automotive emissions.  

    Gold’s significance both culturally and economically has persevered throughout history and continues today. Other than its cultural significance where it plays an important role in traditional ceremonies, gold has been used as a store of value, for trading and investment purposes, for jewellery and for various industrial purposes.  

  • Purpose, vision & values

    At Sibanye-Stillwater, we believe our mining improves lives. Our vision is superior value creation for all our stakeholders through the responsible mining and beneficiation of our mineral resources.

    Everything we do is driven by our CARES values:

    • Commitment: We are committed to operational excellence, to the highest standards of corporate governance, ethical conduct and regulatory compliance, to the protection of life, health and the environment and to adhering to industry and international disclosure and reporting standards which align with our values
    • Accountability: We are accountable to our stakeholders for delivering on our key operational targets and strategic objectives, for identifying, managing and mitigating the risks inherent in our business and for maximising the return on all of the capital we deploy
    • Respect: We treat people fairly, respect each other, value those from all backgrounds, promote and support diversity and seek to help all our employees realise their full potential
    • Enabling: We enable prosperous and sustainable operations by engaging with our stakeholders, empowering our employees and ensuring our communities benefit from our operations and are equipped with skills and resources that will endure after mining ceases
    • Safety: We make safety our top priority because everyone has the right to a safe working environment and nothing is more important than the health, safety and well-being of our people
  • Strategy

    Our strategic objective is to deliver on our vision and purpose. We aim to consolidate and strengthen our competitive position as a leading international precious metals mining company in the medium-term by:

    • establishing a values-based culture and ensuring that our CARES values serve to provide context for every decision made across every level of our organisation
    • maintaining our focus on safe production and operational excellence, including through an intensified focus on embedding world-class safe production systems, securing ISO 45001 certification for our safety management system and formal assurance under the ICMM code
    • de-leveraging our balance sheet by way of innovative financing transactions
    • addressing our South African market discount to intrinsic value as we further expand our global presence
    • pursuing value-accretive growth based on a strengthened equity rating
