Minerals and Resources

Coal

We have six managed mines - including a JV with Anglo American - that produce power station, steam, and coking coal. Most power station coal is supplied to the national power utility, Eskom. Semi-coke and related products are produced for the growing ferroalloys industry. 

Ferrous

Exxaro's FerroAlloys produces gas-atomised ferrosilicon for use in dense medium separation plants.

Iron Ore 

Exxaro owns 21% of Sishen Iron Ore Company (SIOC). They are a leading supplier of high-quality iron ore to the global steel industry, and a subsidiary of Kumba Iron Ore Limited (KIO).

TCWF is located approximately 30 km west of Humansdorp, falling within the Koukamma Local Municipality in the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa and comprises of 31 Vestas wind turbines with a 95.325 MW capacity. Cennergi has a 75% stake in TCWF.
