Zimplats Holdings History

Zimbabwe Platinum Mines (Zimplats) was formed by Delta Gold Limited (Delta) in 1998 with the purpose of acquiring all the platinum interests of Delta. ZIM gained substantial platinum fields and processing facilities through the acquisition of BHP's 67% interest held in the Hartley Platinum Joint Venture and 61.3% interest held in the Mhondoro Platinum Joint Venture in May 1999. The Company produced platinum from its Ngezi mine, located adjacent to its Hartley site in 2001.
