Gold Fields’ South Deep to generate own solar at 8.5% of Eskom grid cost

Gold Fields’ South Deep gold mine west of Johannesburg in Gauteng will be generating its own solar power at a mere 8.5% of the cost of power from the national grid. The JSE- and New York-listed company is also optimistic that it will be successful in augmenting the solar power generated with wind power, Gold Fields VP South Africa Martin Preece told a media conference at the Investing in African Mining Indaba covered by Mining Weekly.
