Situated some 43 km from Middelburg in South Africa’s Mpumalanga province, this mine extracts coal using both underground and opencast operations, employs 1100 employees (with an additional 300 contract employees deployed in the opencast operation) and produces 5Mtpa of power station coal. Arnot uses mechanised mining methods and continuous mining processes. The mine is contracted to supply Eskom’s Arnot power station until 2030 and the contract is a “cost-plus” agreement in which there is a return on investment and a management fee. The mine has a coal reserve base of 87, 869Mt and a resource of 191, 894Mt.
