Where We Operate

With the country's highest resource concentrations, Mpumalanga, Limpopo and the surrounding regions have been at the epicentre of local coal mining industry for decades. it's no surprise then that this is where Exxaro's mines can be found.

Exxaro created renewable-energy company Cennergi in 2012 and built two wind farms with a combined capacity of 229 MW in the Eastern Cape in 2016

Located approximately 80 km southeast of Pretoria in South Africa’s Mpumalanga province, Leeuwpan employs about 600 employees – excluding contractors – and produces 3.65Mtpa of thermal coal.

It is a conventional open-pit mine that uses modified terrace configurations and truck and shovel operations. Coal is processed using dense medium separation for the top coal layer (seam 4) as well as the bottom coal layer (seam 2). Crush and screen technology is also used to supply coal to the power station markets. The principal domestic markets for production are the metals and power-generating industries that consume 2,5Mtpa. Leeuwpan has a coal reserve base of about 52.9Mt and a resource (inclusive) of about 128Mt.
