Kropz, along with Kropz Elandsfontein, has said that it does not anticipate being adversely impacted by the directive issued by the South African government ordering a 21-day
national lockdown, from midnight 26 March 2020 to midnight 16 April 2020.
The company will continue to progress all its workstreams as previously outlined. In particular,
the Elandsfontein phosphate project timetable is not currently affected. In line with the directive, care and
maintenance will continue onsite.
Kropz continues to also monitor the situation closely in the Republic of Congo, where the company’s
100% owned Hinda phosphate project is located. The authorities in the Republic of Congo have introduced a
number of measures to limit the spread of the virus including the closure of all air, land and maritime
borders as of 21 March 2020.
