Khanyisa coal mine obtains water use licence

Published by
World Coal,

Wescoal’s opencast Khanyisa coal mine has been granted a 20-yr Water Usage Licence by the Department of Water & Sanitation.

This will extend the life of the mine, which was brought into the Wescoal stable in 2009, marking the group’s entry into mining.

Khanyisa has consistently outstripped all life of mine projections over the period.

The water use licence is effective immediately and additional regulatory consents are now awaited from the Department of Mineral Resources before mining activities can commence.

Khanyisa is situated near the Kendal power plant, 10 km West of Ogies.
