Enriching lives through innovating the resources company of the future

Tharisa’s core strategy is to generate value by becoming a globally significant low-cost producer of strategic commodities that are required to deliver a sustainable future.

We help to meet global demand for our products using an integrated model for mining, processing, marketing, sales and logistics operations, which we believe adds maximum value to the commodities we mine.

Tharisa’s research and development team (R&D), Arxo Metals, has been a beneficiation pioneer for the products we mine and continues to do so as we guide the group towards its goal of creating a circular economy while producing critical metals for the decarbonisation of global economies.

Our philosophy is to enrich lives responsibly.

Fatality free shifts

Just as our business is continuously evolving, so do the risks and challenges a modern resource company such as ours must address. Having become the standard for risk analysis in our industry, the annual EY Mining Risk report this year highlights Environment and Social and Decarbonisation as risks numbers 1 and 2 respectively. Our licence to operate (risk number 3 this year and number 1 in 2020) is something that we have always focused on as a right that must be earned through being better custodians of the environment, having better relationships with our communities and stakeholders, and making our world a better place to live. Mitigating the potentially adverse impacts of mining on the environment and human health and wellbeing have always been a priority for Tharisa. We must now also concentrate on ensuring that our values on sustainability and mitigating climate change are reflected through our value chain.
