Asia Minerals’ Kudumane Manganese Resources made its first blasting at its Hotazel farm. The manganese mine is expected to make its first commercial shipment in the second quarter of 2018 and produce 400,000 mtpy of 40% Mn ore and reduce production of 36/37% Mn grade at its York farm from 1.6-million mtpy to 1.2-million my to meet its Transnet railway allocation of 1.6-million mtpy.  Kudumane Manganese has three manganese deposits in South Africa (York, Hotazel, Telele) but until now it had commercial production only at the York farm.
