Infrasors is a South African mining resources company, mining, producing and developing new mines for a spread of minerals for the industrial, mining and construction sectors. Its operations are conducted at its Lyttelton Centurion mine, Marble Hall mine, Delf Sand mine and its Delf Silica Coastal mine in Tongaat. The Group is
currently focused on commissioning its proposed Delf Cullinan and Pienaarspoort mines to serve the local silica markets. Financial review Revenue for the year under review was R279,3 million (2011: R243,5 million), an increase of 14,7%, resulting from the realisation of additional plant capacity created in the prior year. The gross profit from operating activities for the year under review was R81,3 million (2011: R70,1 million), an increase of R11,2 million (16,0%). The operating profit before fair value adjustment for the year under review was R23,7 million (2011: R25,2 million), a decrease of R1.5 million(5.9%). Increases in electricity, fuel and payroll costs above inflation resulted in higher operating expenses. An increase in depreciation occurred due to the additional plant and equipment commissioned in the prior year to increaseproduction capacity. The analysis of turnover and operating profit before tax ona segmented basis is detailed herein. Net finance cost increased to R6,9 million(2011: R2,5 million) as a result of restructuring long term debt. Cash generated from operating activities decreased from R34,8 million in 2011 to R31,2 million as a result of the increase in trade receivables held, due to increased sales from operations. The cash outflow from investing activities reduced to R38,5 million (2011: R44,2 million) as a result of capital expenditure incurred during the year. The balance of the increase in property, plant and equipment is as a result of the acquisition of Spec Sand`s operation and the unwinding of the investment in associate company. This reflects an ongoing investment by the Group in plant infrastructure and mine development. The net inflow of financing activities of R7,3 million (2011: R3,8 million) was a result of financing plant and equipment procured and mine development of the Cullinan project and restructuring of the long term debt. The investment in associate was unwound during the year as a consequence of
concluding the exploration phase of the Cullinan and Pienaarspoort projects. Other financial assets increased as a result of investments in endowment polices held for rehabilitation purposes. The rehabilitation provision increased as a result of the mine extensions granted at both Lyttelton Centurion mine and the Delf Sand mine.

Total volumes sold for the Group increased by 9,7%. Sales were however
influenced by the steel industry strike in July and August 2011 and furnace
shutdowns due to power constraints resulting in volumes sold into the
metallurgical sector being constant for the year. The Group was able to increase
its volumes sold into the construction sector despite tight trading conditions.
The sale of dolomite from the Lyttelton Centurion mine increased by 12,2% mainly
due to demand for its construction aggregate. The Marble Hall mine sales
remained constant. The decrease in metallurgical sales was taken up by an
increase in sales of construction aggregate at both its mines. The Group's
milling capacity is being increased to meet expected demand.
Sales of alluvial silica increased by 11,0%. The sale of its core product to the
foundry industry remained steady and a healthy uptake was experienced at its
operation in KwaZulu-Natal in the second half of F2012 and is expected to
continue in the next financial year.
Regulatory approval was granted for the Lyttelton Centurion and Delf Sand mines,
to expand the mine footprints. Solid progress has been made in advancing the
regulatory approvals for the Delf Cullinan mine. Construction is anticipated to
commence in the second half of F2013. A review of the remaining regulatory
approvals is currently being undertaken for the Pienaarspoort Silica Quartz
There have been no material changes in the Group's mineral reserves during this
No lost time injuries were recorded for the financial year in question.
The Group is expected to continue to play a strategic role in the local
construction and metallurgical markets and should gain benefits from planned
infrastructure spend by both private and government sectors.
With the introduction of the alluvial silicia mine at Delf Cullinan, the Group
has positioned itself to play a bigger role in the Southern African silica
market, coupled with its initiative to enter the silica quartz market. With the
granting of the new order mining right at Lyttelton Centurion, further expansion
of the production capacity can now be pursued.
The Group's principal assets Lyttelton and Delf Sand are both positioned to
benefit from increased production tonnages pursuant to:
(i) further expansion of the production capacity at Lyttelton Centurion mine;
(ii) increased production demand of the Lyttelton Marble Hall mine;
(iii) establishment of the alluvial silica mine at Delf Cullinan and access to
its reserves; and
(iv) increased market share in the Delf Silica Coastal mine in KwaZulu-Natal.

statements. Their unqualified review opinion is available for inspection at the
Company's registered office. Their review was conducted in accordance with the

3. Delf Silica Coastal business combination
During the year, a new subsidiary company, Delf Silica Coastal (Pty) Limited,
was formed and acquired certain assets and assumed certain liabilities of a
silica mine and processing operation from Spec Sand CC. This operation was
merged with certain assets held by Delf Sand, known as the Delf Tongaat
processing facility. The resulting business will allow the Group to better serve
the clients in the KwaZulu-Natal area. The merged entity has been in operation
since 1 October 2011. Goodwill arose on acquisition in order to have access to
additional mining reserves required to expand the footprint in the KwaZulu-Natal

5. Investment property
It is the intention of the Group to dispose of land held as investment property
land held to a property developer when the land is established as a township. To
date the assessment phase and the development framework phase have been
completed. The consolidated findings were reported and published in the annual
report for the year ended 28 February 2011.
As part of completing the township establishment process, the property is
required to be included in the Tshwane Metropolitan Municipality urban edge, as
it was previously administered by the disestablished Nokeng municipality. During
the year under review an application to include the property as part of the
Tshwane Metropolitan spatial development programme was submitted. This will be
followed by the application for township establishment approval.
The valuation of the total project potential was performed by Mr Phil Randal-
Smith, an independent valuer. He conducted a valuation of the investment
property in F2010, on a "willing, able and informed seller and willing, able and
informed buyer" market basis for the fully completed project. The valuation,
which conforms to International Valuation Standards, was arrived at by reference
to market evidence of transaction prices for similar properties. Using this
valuation, the current fair value was based on the stage of completion method.
The stage of completion has been confirmed by the town and regional planners,
Hunter Theron Inc. The directors consider the valuation performed previously to
remain pertinent. The fair value of the investment property at 29 February 2012
amounts to R98,1 million (2011: R87,5 million) which results in a fair value
adjustment of R10,0 million (2011: R30,6 million). The Group's investment
property is unencumbered.
