South Africa May Build 15 Billion-Rand Metals Plant

South Africa is considering building an integrated metal-processing factory that would require an investment of 15 billion rand ($2.05 billion) and have the potential to create 7,000 jobs, Economic Development Minister Ebrahim Patel said.

The plant would be capable of processing titanium, zirconium, vanadium, magnesium and silicone, he said in a speech to Parliament in Cape Town today. A study into the feasibility of the project is under way, he said.
