The Marikana Renewal aims to create a positive legacy by contributing to the delivery of tangible, sustained, long-term socio-economic value and positive impacts to enable the Marikana communities, as well as the broader district, to continue and to flourish, long after mining has ceased.

Creating sustained value

Socio-economic development is key to creating sustained value for the communities of Marikana. Through our stakeholder engagement and related research, we have increased our understanding of the most significant challenges faced by these communities and identified those areas on which to focus the Marikana Renewal.

Many of the Marikana economic renewal projects are being piloted in partnership with organisations such as Bapo Ba Mogale Development Trust, BeeAfrican, Mineworkers Development Agency, Umsizi, Isizwe and Rand Mutual.

These projects fall largely under the relevant operational social and labour plans (SLPs) or under Sibanye-Stillwater’s corporate social investment.
