Rocklands Mill is a mining timber mill established in conjunction with local partners. It mainly produces underground supports for the South African mining industry (small mining timber, turned poles and pencil props).
Since 2012, we’ve only invested in Africa and South Asia. Investments outside these regions are from our pre-2012 portfolio.
- Africa, Southern Africa
We have seven priority sectors. However, we continue to invest outside these sectors, largely in the most challenging regions, as new investment supporting any sector helps to underpin the private sector, and create jobs and livelihoods for people.
