About Fraser Alexander
Cousins Fraser and Fred Alexander formed Fraser Alexander in 1912, as a tailings deposition service to the Witwatersrand’s emerging gold mining industry. Even then, our innovative nature was obvious, as we were the first to use cocopans to remove tailings from processing plants. Soon we were managing 70% of the dumps in the region.
Over the following century, we raised the practice of residue and tailings management to a science, delivering best-practice solutions to locations across Africa, the Americas, Europe, Asia and Australia. In this time, we also expanded our service offering and in 2006, we were acquired by Royal Bafokeng Holdings, the investment arm of the Royal Bafokeng Nation.
