South Africa is one of the few countries in the world to be blessed with the gift of natural resources that are constantly exported around the world.


As a country we pride ourselves with the ability to share and ensure that in return we are able to show the world that dynamites do actually come in small packages and Tricore is the ignition switch.


Here at Tricore Resources we source your commodity of choice and ensure the right quality and quantities are met!

The basic idea is there is little differentiation between a commodity coming from one producer and the same commodity from another producer. A slot of chrome concentrate is basically the same product, regardless of the producer.


By contrast, for coal , the quality and features of a given product may be completely different depending on the rejection. Some traditional examples of commodities include Duff, Steam coal, Peas, ROM and bituminous coal.


More recently, the issue has expanded to negotiations of financial instruments, such as foreign currencies and payments.


Technological advances have also led to new types of commodities being exchanged and paid for through arrangment with the Banks in the marketplace.

It is the largest new investment in the manganese industry in the country and supports government’s drive to increase the beneficiation in South Africa.


Chromium is a metal used to induce hardness, toughness, and chemical resistance in steel. The alloy produced is known as "stainless steel." When alloyed with iron and nickel, it produces an alloy known as "nichrome" which is resistant to high temperatures and used to make heating units, ovens, and other appliances.


Thin coatings of chromium alloys are used as platings on auto parts, appliances, and other products. These are given the name "chrome plated." It is also used to make superalloys that can perform well in the hot, corrosive, and high-stress environment of jet engines.


Some of the material treated is Run of Mine (ROM) tailings and arisings, in addition to dumps which have been standing for long periods. In parts of some of these old tailings oxidation has taken place. Where this has occurred, the recovery of PGMs is lower.


  • Lignite is the youngest type of coal. It is soft and ranges in colour from black to shades of brown. As a result, it’s sometimes called brown coal. Lignite is mainly used for power generation and accounts for 17 percent of the world’s coal reserves.


  • After millions of years, continued pressure and temperature convert lignite into sub-bituminous coal. It burns more cleanly than other types of coal due to its low sulfur content. Sub-bituminous coal has applications in power generation and also in industrial processes. This coal type makes up 30 percent of the world’s coal reserves.


  • Bituminous coal is harder and blacker than lignite and sub-bituminous coal, and can be divided into two types: thermal and metallurgical. Together, they make up 52 percent of the world’s coal reserves. This coal type is mostly used for power generation, cement manufacturing and other industrial purposes, while metallurgical coal is used primarily for making iron and steel.


  • Anthracite is the most mature coal and thus has the highest carbon content of any type of coal. It is frequently used for home heating and, accounting for about 1 percent of the world’s total coal reserves, represents a very small portion of the overall market. Anthracite can be used as a smokeless fuel in domestic and industrial contexts.


  • Iron ore refers to rocks or minerals from which metallic iron is extracted for commercial use. These minerals appear dark grey to rusty red in colour, and are usually rich in iron oxides.


  • Iron ore is used to extract metallic iron which has a wide variety of applications in the industrial realm.   The most important use of iron has been in the production of steel. Steel is known for its high durability, strength, and versatility. Even though pure iron is soft in nature, the addition of a small percentage of carbon to the metal hardens it enough to ensure it a formidable level of strength and durability.


  • Other elements like manganese, nickel, chromium and molybdenum might be added to iron in varying combinations and amounts to yield different alloys with specific properties as well. Steel finds its use in the construction industry, automobile industry, machine manufacturing industry, can and container manufacturing, appliance manufacturing, as well as in number of other important heavy industries.


  • Iron chloride is used in sewage treatment systems, as well as in paints and textile colourants. Wrought iron is rust-resistant, and is therefore favoured for use in creating household furniture and fences, while cast iron has traditionally been used to prepare kitchen utensils and cookware.


  •  Iron hydroxide is often employed in water purification systems, while iron sulfate is utilized in the treatment of iron deficiency anemias. Iron and niobium are combined to create an alloy that is used in manufacture of nuclear reactors. The manufacture of permanent magnets and electromagnets involves pure iron, while iron arsenate is used in producing insecticides and other poisons.
