Coal Mining in South Africa. Coal mining’s advent in South Africa can best be traced to the start of gold mining in the late 19 th century, particularly on the Witwatersrand, with the first coal in appreciable tonnages being extracted on the Highveld coal field close to the nascent Witwatersrand gold mines. However, demand began to grow, slowly at first but then exponentially as the country entered a period

In South Africa, a substantial proportion of our production was, until recently, thermal coal used for the generation of domestic electricity. Today the focus is firmly set upon a select group of high performing Mpumalanga-based assets for the supply of around 19 million tonnes of thermal coal a year to export markets across several continents. This shift became effective on 1 March 2018, with the sale of our Eskom-tied mines
Boikarabelo mine is a two-phased open-cut coal mine being developed in the Waterberg coalfield located in the Limpopo province of South Africa. Spread over 9,018ha, the coal mine is expected to extract 616.85 million tonnes (Mt) of coal over its expected mine life of more than 40 years. The annual coal production is estimated to be 15.12Mt.
Conditions on most South African mines are very similar to those elsewhere except for the gold mines where the low geothermal gradient, i.e. the rate at which the temperature goes up with depth, is often as low as 9 °C per kilometre depth (compared with a world average of about 25 °C/km), and this, combined with narrow and very continuous orebodies in hard and competent rocks, makes it possible to mine to
Proven coal reserves in the Kriel Coalfield are the No 2, 4 and 5 seams, but only the No 4 seam is economically extracted. The coal is ranked as low-grade bituminous steam coal and the depth of the coal seam ranges from 6 m to 85 m below the ground. All coal historically and currently produced is dedicated to the Kriel Power station.

high grade coal produced in South Africa was a calorific value of 12.5 lbs/lb (28.22 MJ/kg). Most producers managed to deliver the required quality of coal by selective mining combined with good hand-sorting.
