Rössing Uranium donates busses to NIMT

Rössing Uranium donated two busses to the Namibia Institute of Mining and Technology (NIMT) in Arandis. The donation, which falls part of the company’s deliberate efforts to keep up to the mine’s
national CSI footprint, is believed to be a huge score for NIMT who have for long struggled to
transport trainees to and from the vocational centre.

The donation of the two 52-seater Higer busses, valued at N$2.4 million, will allow NIMT to
replace some of its ageing fleet. In addition, each bus is equivalent to replacing three smaller
busses, thereby reducing the amount of traffic on the B2 highway between Arandis and
Swakopmund, improving the safety of road users.

At the donation handover, Rossing Uranium Managing Director Johan Coetzee highlighted the
strong relationship between the two organisations, dating back to 1990 when Rossing
constructed phase 1 of the vocational facility aimed to train and develop technical skilled
Namibians to contribute to the growth of the country.

“For many years NIMT, has been a cornerstone and leader in training and producing skilled
artisans for the Namibian mining industry, as well other businesses in Namibia having a need
of the various artisan skills covered at this institution,” said Coetzee, adding that nearly half of
Rössing artisans have been trained at NIMT, which is testament to the contribution of NIMT.
