Afarak Group: AFARAK GROUP - AFARAK COMPLETES €3 MILLION SHAKING TABLE INVESTMENT PROJECT

Company") (LSE: AFRK, OMX: AFAGR)
AFARAK GROUP -
AFARAK COMPLETES SHAKING TABLE PROJECT

€3 million investment project completed
Project will achieve up to 40% mass yield from tailings

Work on the 24-table project started in June 2015 and after finalizing the
commissioning in and testing process in April 2016, the plant is now ready to
commence full production. Over 90 people were employed on the project during
its construction phase. 20 new jobs have been created as a result of the €3
million investment.
The shaking table technology is being implemented by Afarak both in Turkey and
South Africa. It is an environmental-friendly technology which enables the
treatment of tailing dumps for chrome. Results from the Stellite shaking
table Plant show that mass yield from the tailings will be up to 40% and the
plant has a monthly capacity of 5,000 tones per month.
Dr Alistair Ruiters, CEO, said that the shaking table project embodies
Afarak's vision. "Afarak is today positioning itself as a technology
company. The shaking table project allows us to increase our yield from
tailings thus reducing our cost per ton. Our propriety technology further
confirms our commitment to new investment and to establishing Afarak as a
leader in the sector."
