Gold Fields’ South Deep solar project now 50 MW, equivalent wind planned

South Deep gold mine in Gauteng, where a 40 MW solar power project was initially announced, will now have a 50 MW solar plant as a result of the procurement of more efficient solar panels. Mining Weekly can report that the construction of the R715-million solar power plant at South Deep will provide the mine with about a quarter of its power requirements and save it over R120-million a year in electricity costs.
