Sibanye-Stillwater is a leading international precious metals mining company, with a diverse portfolio of platinum group metal (PGM) operations in the United States (US), South Africa, and Zimbabwe, gold operations and projects in South Africa, and copper, gold and PGM exploration properties in North and South America. Recently, we diversified our portfolio – geographically and by commodity – with the acquisition of a 30% stake in a lithium hydroxide project in Finland.

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 a globally leading recycler and processor of spent PGM catalytic converter materials.

PGMs are unique precious metals used in a wide variety of applications, including automobile catalysts, jewellery, fuel cells, hydrogen purification and electronics. Together, in 2019 autocatalytic converters and jewellery accounted for around 75% of platinum, palladium and rhodium demand; autocatalysts alone accounted for 34% of platinum demand, and 84% of palladium demand and 88% of rhodium 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. In addition to playing an important role in traditional cultural ceremonies, gold has been used by central banks and others as a store of value, for trading and investment purposes, for jewellery and for various industrial purposes.

Lithium and lithium compounds are used widely in a variety of commercial applications from glass and ceramic manufacturing to the medical industry. More recently, lithium use has increased significantly particularly in the electric vehicle market. Rechargeable lithium-ion batteries are light, weighing approximately 75% less than lead-acid batteries having equal capacity, which makes a lithium-ion battery an excellent choice for electric cars or bikes.
