The Industrial Minerals division supplies the steel industry with metallurgical dolomite, the construction industry with a variety of aggregate products and the agricultural industry with agricultural lime through its Glen Douglas, Infrasors’ Marble Hall and Lyttleton mines.
The Glen Douglas mine is uniquely positioned to supply customers in the southern parts of Johannesburg and the northern Free State and has a formidable presence in the Vaal area. The mine has reserves for the next 30 to 40 years and can facilitate cheaper transport costs for its customers through a rail siding equipped with a mechanical loading facility
Afrimat has a 97.3% stake in resources group Infrasors, which produces dolomite, limestone and silica further expanding Afrimat’s foothold in industrial minerals.

They supply metallurgical dolomite to the iron steel industry and stone dust (powders) to the coal and agricultural industries.
