It owns and produces a significant proportion of the world’s minerals- nearly 75 per cent of platinum metals, 75 per cent of manganese, 73 per cent of chrome, 45 per cent of vanadium and 41 per cent of gold are located in South Africa. A substantial variety of other minerals are extracted, including iron ore, copper, nickel, diamonds, coal, building materials and other non-metallic minerals.
