First consignment of manganese for export via Lüderitz

The historic first consignment of manganese, originating from mines in South Africa’s Northern Cape, arrived by train at Lüderitz last week, destined for exports to various overseas markets via the Namibian Ports Authority’s (Namport) port of Lüderitz.

The national rail carrier TransNamib made an announcement in this regard last week.
Totalling 520 tons, this consignment promises to create job- and business opportunities not only in Lüderitz but also to Aus, Keetmanshoop, Karasburg and Ariamvlei which are on the same route.
South Africa produces 33,5 % of the world’s manganese and among the biggest and best quality manganese are to be found in Northern Cape mines. Lüderitz poses the most economic and time efficient route for the export of manganese by these Northern Cape miners and so far there is a commitment for 30 000 metric tons per month to Lüderitz for export.
