Govt, industry tackle platinum challenges

first_img19 June 2012 Mineral Resources Minister Susan Shabangu and South African platinum producers, including leaders from the Mining Industry Growth and Development Task Team (MIGDETT), met in Pretoria on Monday to thrash out the challenges facing the industry. According to the department, the minister and industry representatives held a “frank and open” discussion. “As a result of the meeting, all parties agreed on a process to address current challenges facing the platinum sector, with a view to putting in place a short-term and medium- to long-term plan for the sector,” the department said in a statement. The department will convene a task team that will lead the effort and its first meeting will be held shortly, with very tight time-frames to report back to the broader MIGDETT principals’ meeting, which will be convened by the minister soon. The government and industry representatives agreed to engage on ideas to enrich the work of the task team. MIGDETT has been mandated to come up with ways of making South Africa’s mining industry more competitive and sustainable, and to identify the negative perceptions that investor circles worldwide have about the country’s mining industry.

You plan to install 2 or 4 inches of rigid foam on the exterior of the wall sheathing, followed by vertical rainscreen strapping and siding. Where does the housewrap go?Depending on who you talk to, you get two different answers:I’ve heard a variety of arguments in favor of each position. For example, I’ve heard that the housewrap belongs between the foam and the strapping, “because that way it’s easier to integrate with the flashing at the logical drainage plane.”On the other hand, I’ve heard that the housewrap belongs between the sheathing and the foam, “because that way it protects the sheathing,” or “to prevent the housewrap from flapping in the wind,” or even “to protect the housewrap from extreme temperatures which might degrade the plastic.”Both sides of this argument have merit. If you have a strong opinion favoring either position, it’s safe to say that either approach can work well, as long as the housewrap is properly integrated with all of the window flashing, door flashing, and the flashings protecting other penetrations.If this quandary has you discombobulated, though, here’s an easy way through the thicket:If you’re unfamiliar with the innie/outie terminology, an innie window’s flanges are in the same plane as the OSB or plywood wall sheathing, while an outie window’s flanges are in the same plane as the back of the siding. (For more on this topic, see ‘Innie’ Windows or ‘Outie’ Windows?)Innie windows are installed just like they are on a house without exterior foam. The housewrap covers the plywood or OSB sheathing, and the window is installed with your favorite flexible-flashing details. The foam is installed later, and there’s… last_img read more
