South Africa’s mine production value exceeded R1tr for the first time in 2021

South Africa’s mineral production achieved record values in 2021, exceeding R1-trillion for the first time, buoyed by strong commodity prices and giving the domestic economy a vital injection of higher taxes, wages and increased employment. This is according to industry body the Minerals Council South Africa’s ‘Facts and Figures 2021’, a yearly publication that provides in-depth data and insights into the status and performance of the mining industry and its contribution to the economy.
