Purposeful mining for the betterment of South Africa and beyond

South Africa’s mining sector has an outsize impact on its economy. It employs around half-a million people extending to manufacturing, infrastructure, export revenue, and energy generation. The country’s coal industry contributes about 3.5% of the world’s coal resources, around 72% of South Africa’s primary energy supply and 90% of the country’s electricity. Today, the coal industry is a more important contributor to South Africa’s economy than gold.

In the last decade and a half, Exxaro has established itself as an organisation that is respected by its peers for its innovation and commitment to people development.
