Our CEO Denga Kwinda participated in the Future Opportunities for Emerging Miners panel.

In response to concerns over Eskom’s growing coal shortfall, panel members shared insights on how best to tackle this challenge. Kwinda reiterated the role of emerging miners in contributing to Eskom’s supply chain, emphasising the quick wins that can be achieved from partnering with miners who can commit set loads to the utility.

“We have earmarked some of our mines that can provide a steady flow of coal to the utility and further bolster their reserves” said Kwinda.
