Description

only operating coal mine in Swaziland is the Maloma colliery, producing anthracite from operations with a capacity of some 480,000 t/y (2002 production: 310,000 t). Operation of the mine is under Xstrata South Africa, which has a 75% shareholding in the mine, and all production is currently exported to South Africa. Proposals to open the Mpaka Colliery, after years of suspension but with reported reserves of around 30 Mt, have not yet materialised and are dependent on availability of financial investment.
