27. Contingent liabilities

Details of contingent liabilities where the probability of future payments/receipts is not considered remote are set out below, as well as details of contingent liabilities, which although considered remote the Directors consider should be disclosed. The Directors are of the opinion that provisions are not required in respect of these matters, as it is not probable that a future sacrifice of economic benefits will be required or the amount is not capable of reliable measurement.


The controlled entities of the Company provide for all known environmental liabilities. While the Directors of each of those entities and the Company believe that, based upon current information, their current provisions for environmental rehabilitation are adequate, there can be no assurance that new material provisions will not be required as a result of new information or regulatory requirements with respect to known mining operations or identification of new rehabilitation obligations at other mine operations.
