Wescoal granted water-use licence for Khanyisa

Wescoal announced on Thursday that it was awarded the 20 year water-use licence by the Department of Water & Sanitation, effective immediately.

“This is another step in helping extend the life of the mine at Khanyisa – an operation that was brought into the Wescoal stable in 2009, marking the group’s entry into mining, ” the company said in a statement.

Khanyisa has consistently outstripped all LOM projections over the period.

Additional regulatory consents are now awaited from the Department of Mineral Resources before mining activities can commence at Khanyisa.
