The growth was achieved notwithstanding the loss of the equivalent of approximately two months’ of operational time due to restrictions under coronavirus legislation in South Africa, where Jubilee has its operations.
The company was also able to boost revenue by 18% to £29.4mln. Jubilee’s cash position increased to £10.8mln, as of the June 30, 2020, period end.
All operations in chrome and platinum group metals production have returned to 100% capacity, while it is maintaining strict health and safety measures.
