Coal Mining in South Africa

Coal mining in South Africa plays a significant role in the country’s economy as it is responsible for nearly three quarters of Eskom’s fuel supply. The industry is also responsible for supplying the coal-to-liquids (CTL) industry, developed by the South African fuel company, SASOL, who produces around 35% of the country’s liquid fuel.

Coal mining in South Africa is centred on the Highveld, with roughly 60% of the country’s deposits located in eMalahleni (Witbank) and surrounding areas. Africa Mining IQ, a database on coal mining in South Africa as well as other mining projects around the world, lists Kumba Resources, BHP Billiton (Ingwe Collieries), Sasol Mining, Eyesizwe and Anglo American Thermal Coal as the key companies actively coal mining in South Africa.

Africa Mining IQ lists two of the biggest coal mining in South Africa projects to be the Mafube Colliery surface mine, and the New Largo Project – also a surface mining operation. The Mafube Colliery project is recorded by Africa Mining IQ to produce 1.1 million tonnes of coal per year for supply to the Arnot Power Station in Mpumalanga, making it worth ZAR 16 billion over its lifespan – the largest coal mining in South Africa project currently underway.

The New Largo Project, the South African coal industry’s second largest operation, is geared to produce around 15 million tonnes of coal per year for supply to the Kusile Power Station, roughly 25km from eMalahleni, and is valued at around ZAR 11 billion.
