Where We Operate

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

The Belfast Coal mine is situated in the Mpumalanga province, 55 km East of Middelburg and 20 km South-West of Belfast. The mine forms part of the Witbank coalfield on the southern side of the N4 highway.

Belfast Coal will produce primary A-grade (6 000 kcal/kg) and secondary middling (21.5 MJ/kg) products. The coal supply forms part of the Exxaro RB1 export product, which will be railed to the Richards Bay Coal Terminal (RBCT). The mine will produce a combined total of 2.7 million tonnes per annum for a 17-year life.
