The Square Kilometre Array (SKA) project is an international effort to build the world’s largest radio telescope, with eventually over a square kilometre (one million square metres) of collecting area. The scale of the SKA represents a huge leap forward in both engineering and research & development towards building and delivering a unique instrument, with the detailed design and preparation now well under way. As one of the largest scientific endeavours in history, the SKA will bring together a wealth of the world’s finest scientists, engineers and policy makers to bring the project to fruition.
Lonmin is listed on the stock exchanges in London and Johannesburg. The Company engages in the discovery, extraction, refining and marketing of platinum group metals (PGMs) and is one of the world's largest primary producers of PGMs. These metals are essential for many industrial applications, especially catalytic converters for internal combustion engine which prevent harmful emissions, and, particularly in China and Japan, where platinum is a metal of choice amongst jewellery manufacturers. The by-products arising from PGM mining include gold, copper, nickel, chrome and cobalt. Accelerating our strategy through a tough operating environment Our core operations, consisting of eleven shafts and inclines, are situated in the Bushveld Igneous Complex in South Africa, a country which hosts nearly 80% of global PGM resources. We are in possession of a new order mining licence from the South African government for our core operations, which runs to 2037 and is renewable to 2067. We have resources of 183 million troy ounces (3 PGE + Au) of PGMs and 36 million ounces of reserves. We conduct all our business in a way which is socially and environmentally responsible and sustainable. We believe this is essential for Lonmin's future and for the wellbeing of all our stakeholders.

Hartebeesthoek is in the province of Gauteng in South Africa. History The Observatory began as Deep Space Station 51, built in 1961 by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) of the United States of America. An 85 foot = 26 metre diameter antenna was used to get data from, and send commands to, many unmanned US space probes going beyond Earth orbit. These included the Ranger, Surveyor and Lunar Orbiter spacecraft which landed on the Moon or mapped it from orbit, the Mariner missions which explored the planets Venus and Mars and the Pioneers which measured the Sun's winds. The station was handed over to the South African Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) in 1975 and was converted to a radio astronomy observatory. In 1988 the observatory became a National Facility operated by the Foundation for Research Development (FRD). In 1999 the FRD was restructured as the National Research Foundation (NRF). The original function of the observatory post-NASA was purely research in radio astronomy, but a new science developed at HartRAO from the 1980's, namely Space Geodesy, i.e. geodesy using space techniques. The radio telescopes are used for both astronomy and space geodesy, and we have other dedicated space geodesy instrumentation.
