A mega project worth noting which was awarded to Mvuso in 2014, was the execution of the horizontal development package of the Palabora Mining Company’s Lift II Project.

The scope of work on this underground Project, with a budget of circa ZAR 2 billion, was scheduled for completion during the 3rd quarter of the year 2020. It entailed some 32 kilometres of tunnelling, with mechanised mining machinery, and construction of the related infrastructure to create a lower Block-Cave production platform to extend the Life of Mine by some 18 years to the year 2033.

The magnitude of this scope of work was considered to be the largest in the world.

Mvuso was further considered for the execution of the Block-Cave Undercut scope of work on the same Project. This work entailed some 8 kilometres of tunnelling, construction of some 217 production drawbells and some 800 000 metres of production long-hole drilling at a budget of circa ZAR 1 billion. This increased scope of work commenced early 2018 and was scheduled for completion during the 2nd quarter of the year 2022.

The success of this project would have direct influence (socio-economic) on the livelihoods of some 150 000 people from within the surrounding / local communities.
