Minas Moatize Limitada, a subsidiary of Beacon Hill Resources, has entered into an Interim Rail Access Agreement with Portos e Caminhos de Ferro de Mocambique, the country’s port and rail regulator that grants the company a capacity allocation of 0.5 million tpa on the Sena railway line, beginning April 2013.
The Sena railway line starts around 3 km away from the Minas Moatize metallurgical coal mine in Tete province and travels 580 km to the Port of Beira. It is currently nearing completion of a US$ 60 million upgrade that increases its capacity to 6.5 million tpa. Minas Moatize will become the third major coal exporter using the rail line alongside Rio Tinto and Vale.
