Logo P² Mining
This company was established when an essential niche in the market was identified. There are many large mining operations that have marginalised shafts. For various reasons, they have chosen not to continue operations in that mining zone. P² Mining specialises in re-opening these mines and extracting the ore at a mutually beneficial cost to owners.

By employing leaner methods and leasing equipment on-site, it is possible to get value from shafts that would otherwise not be exploited as the company may feel that the resources required are not profitable.

The unique value proposition that we offer to stakeholders is literally a win, win situation. We bring our resources, knowledge and extraction capabilities to the project so that our stakeholders can reap the absolute best from their redundant and marginal operations. We do this by means of obtaining a “resource lease” and/or an operations agreement. From this point on, we can begin extracting residual minerals from certain existing shaft zones. Although the amounts extracted are incremental, they do not require the extra time and resources of the owners. In this way, both P² Mining and our clients benefit from something that would otherwise be left unexploited.

Logo Rackrete
Cement products and concrete aggregates are absolutely vital in underground mining construction. With the application of methods such as “shotcrete” becoming more viable in the industry; we identified a market for good, high quality cement and support products that are specifically formulated for underground construction. In many areas, poor ground conditions and sub-surface water makes it more important to use the very best quality raw materials. Because the life expectancy of many mines can run into decades, it is important that the shaft lining material be solid and reliable. Rakcrete applies the most stringent methods to ensure a superior, long-lasting product.

Rakcrete provides the following products:

  • BAGGED PRE-MIX
    We provide concrete aggregate used in underground construction applications.
  • SHOTCRETE
    For use in underground support, rock face lining, or in structural repair applications.
  • FIBRECRETE
    We supply the Poly-fiber reinforcement which is typically used along with Shotcrete.
  • BULK CRUSHER STONE
    We supply the concrete aggregates along with our cement product range.
