NOTES

Other lots sold included Stains, Contaminated etc which achieved lower prices and have not been included in the above figures.

For almost the same consignment weight, the total sale value achieved in 2012 was higher than 2011, but because the Rand/Sterling exchange rate was not in our favour (R12 .0 in 2012 compared to R11.4885 in 2011), the actual receipt was lower.
