In essence, South Africa can broadly be defined as an economy with low levels of mineral beneficiation, in that most of its minerals are exported as ores or semi processed minerals rather than high value intermediate to finished products. The beneficiation strategy is aimed at providing a strategic focus for South Africas minerals
Mineral beneficiation in South Africa. The concept of beneficiation is not new in South Africa, but it took major steps forward during the 1990s. During this period, the South African mining sector changed from being a predominantly primary commodity exporter to becoming a world exporter of processed minerals.
SADC countries produce two thirds of Africasmineral exports by value. South Africasmining sector is currently the largest on the continent, and largest for underground mining equipment. Imports grew from 2009 to 2018, SA imported US$ 3.5 bn of mining and machinery equipment in 2018 and SADC US$ 7.5 bn. Interventions include:
