Coal    

Eight managed coal mines produced 45,2Mtpa of power station, steam and coking coal. All power station coal produced was supplied to the national power utility, Eskom, and municipal power stations. Grootegeluk is one of the most efficient mining operations in the world, and operates the world’s largest coal beneficiation complex. There is a robust pipeline of greenfield and other expansion projects under way that will culminate in Exxaro becoming one of the largest coal producers in South Africa. Exxaro also produces char and related products for the rapidly growing ferroalloys industry.
