HOUSTON (ICIS)–South Africa phosphate developer Kropz announced it has sent their first shipment and sale of 33,000 tonnes of phosphate concentrate from their Elandsfontein project.

Last December, the producer said the product – which has been generated throughout the commissioning and ramp-up period – will be sold at a discount to current market prices, but did not identify the purchaser.

“After numerous challenges, we are delighted to announce our first bulk sale from our Elandsfontein Phosphate project which is a very significant achievement for Kropz. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank all the team for their dedication and hard work to reach this milestone,” said Louis Loubser, Kropz CEO.

The Elandsfontein project is located on the west coast of South Africa, approximately 95km north-northwest of Cape Town. It is being planned to deliver more than 1m tonnes/year of phosphate rock.
