Fairbreeze water supply

Fairbreeze will not compete with Mtunzini town’s drinking water supply as the mine will use raw river water supplied by Mhlathuze Water from the Mhlathuze River via a bulk water supply pipeline.

Fairbreeze infrastructure design at peak production can accommodate up to 48,800m3 of water per day. However, the actual average water abstraction from the pipeline will be approximately 37,000m3.

Recycling of water will be optimised within the operation to minimise the bulk water supply.
