SibanyeANA reports that Sibanye Gold on Tuesday announced a R30 million sponsorship for the University of Johannesburg (UJ) and the University of the Witwatersrand (Wits) to underpin its commitment to tertiary education.  

The precious metals’ producer provided funding of R25 million to the same institutions in 2014.  Sibanye said the funding will enable both universities to maintain high quality teaching and learning standards, support increased intensity in research and innovation and provide essential capital for development and maintenance of world class facilities.  In 2016, Sibanye funded R49 million in bursaries and internships and committed to invest a further R432 million over the next five years, to ensure access to quality tertiary education for about 640 young South Africans entering the mining industry.  Meanwhile, Sibanye last week also signed a three-year R15 million partnership with UJ to integrate mining education with the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
