About ARM (African Rainbow Minerals)
World-class, long-life, low-unit-cost assets underpin African Rainbow Minerals’ position as a leading South African diversified mining and resources firm in the minerals sector. AfriRights Mining (ARM) was established in 2004 to operate in the South African and African mining sectors, as well as to develop, explore, and hold major interests in these industries.
In 2010, ARM completed its plan to double production across its diverse portfolio of assets, which was successfully completed. It was the culmination of this approach that saw the delivery of seven mines of excellent quality, extended life, and cheap unit cost. ARM is continuing to pursue an ambitious expansion strategy, with a particular emphasis on its growth initiatives in the iron ore, coal, nickel, and copper industries, among others.
