Originally known as the Winnaarshoek project, Implats acquired the property in December 2000 with the acquisition of Toronto-listed Platexco Inc. Simultaneously, Implats entered into a sublease with Anglo Platinum/Lebowa Minerals Trust on a portion of their contiguous Driekop property. Implats also exchanged its Hendriksplaats property for Anglo Platinum's Clapham and a portion of the Forest Hill properties, which have been incorporated into the lease area of the project.
The Bushveld Complex is one of the largest PGE deposits in the world

Marula is managed by a small, core Implats team. Initially, the mining, concentrator operations and associated services were outsourced but these functions were brought in-house in January 2005. At full production in 2009, the mine will produce 140 000 ounces of platinum per annum.
