Coal

  • Six managed coal mines produce 39Mtpa of power station, steam and coking coal. Most power station coal is supplied to the national power utility, Eskom.
  • Semi-coke and related products are produced for the growing ferroalloys industry
  • Grootegeluk is one of the most efficient mining operations in the world, and runs the world’s largest coal beneficiation complex. It is the only producing mine in the coal-rich Waterberg, adjacent to Eskom’s existing Matimba and new Medupi power stations.
  • Robust pipeline of greenfield and expansion projects: – By 2017, the R3,8 billion Belfast mine is scheduled to be commissioned. At full capacity the mine will deliver around 2,2Mtpa of export steam coal and 500ktpa of power station coal
  • Phase 1 of a bankable feasibility study for the opencast Thabametsi began in 2014 with construction planned for 2016. This will coincide with the development of GDF SUEZ’s power station project.
