KZN coal mining set for major revival

2008-09-16 00:00

Although a colliery near Dannhauser in northern KZN is poised to commence production later this year, the possible combination of several “farms” in Glencoe into a mine may mark the true revival of KZN coal mining.

“First and second phase drilling has been done. About 75% of it is high-grade coking coal. There could be about 100 million tons in total. That would justify the development of a mine. Now, the process is to do the environmental impact assessments and complying with all the department of Minerals and Energy’s requirements,” he said.
