The mining fraternity is on the brink of rediscovering its old sparkle especially looking at the vast developments that have been witnessed lately. Among other developments is the imminent commissioning of the Yadah Connect’s marble cutting and polishing plant located on Plymouth Road in Southerton. The plant is being assembled and the commissioning is penciled for the end of February if all goes according to schedule. The plant will be getting material for processing from the Yadah Connect mines. Currently Yadah Connect has one operational marble mine in Concession and 27 marble claims dotted around the country, which are yet to be operationalised.
