Established in 1997, BedRock Mining Support is the leading supplier of underground mine support to the South African gold and platinum mines. These products vary from yielding and non-yielding elongates (poles) to manufactured timber products such as composites, mat packs, chocks and gum planks. As part of TWK Agri, BedRock forms part of a fully integrated timber supply chain, optimised from seedling to stope, with products manufactured in TWK Agri’s four mining timber mills.
BedRock has a presence on the premises of our customers across the gold and platinum mining areas, namely Sibanye-Stillwater, Anglo Platinum and Siyanda Bakgatla Platinum, to name a few. BedRock operates two service centres in Westonaria and near Welkom where products destined for the gold mining markets are treated with fire-retardant. BedRock also operates an expansive service centre near Rustenburg to service the PGM mines on the western limb of the Bushveld Complex, and where a comprehensive suite of value-adding activities take place.
