(Reuters) - South African logistics group Transnet will press ahead with a proposed plan to relocate its manganese terminal to the Ngqura deep-water port and will direct all future manganese exports through the Eastern Cape-province facility, it said on Friday.

The current manganese terminal is located at Port Elizabeth, some 20 kilometres (12 miles) away. The new manganese terminal will be completed by 2016, a Transnet spokesman said, and will initially handle exports of around 12 million tonnes.
