Johannesburg - Merafe Resources [JSE:MRF] has said the
Xstrata-Merafe chrome venture is in talks with Eskom, in order to
assist the state-owned power utility with its immediate supply requirements.
The company announced that contractual commitments to the
venture's customers for the second quarter of 2012 will not be affected, as
these will be serviced from existing ferrochrome stock.
Merafe said a further announcement would be made once
discussions have been concluded.
