Description: Anglo Operations proposes the development of the Setlabotsha Mine located near Standerton in the Lekwa Local Municipality and the Gert Sibande District Municipality in Mpumalanga Province. The proposed Setlabotsha project will involve the extraction of coal by means of underground mining methods. The coal resource will be accessed by two new shafts and the coal will be transported via a new overland conveyor to the existing new Denmark Colliery. No processing will take place at the Setlabotsha shaft complexes.
Value: R 100 million+
Timing: 2017 onwards
Notes: Anglo has appointed SRK Consulting as the Independent Environmental Assessment Practitioner to undertake the environmental authorisation process for the proposed project. The Scoping Report was submitted to the DMR in December 2016 and they are currently evaluating the Report. DMR Ref MP 30/5/1/2/2 1015 EM
