Powering Possibility

Exxaro established itself as one of South Africa’s largest and foremost black-empowerment resources companies and is among the top five coal producers in South Africa and a constituent of the JSE’s Top 40 index, as well as the top 30 in the FTSE/JSE Responsible Investment index. 

Exxaro operates in Mpumalanga and Limpopo regions, where the country’s highest coal resource concentrations can be found. We manage five mines that produce thermal, steam, and coking coal. 80% of the coal is sold to domestic markets, with the balance sold internationally. The company has a diversified portfolio of assets, solid resource base and is the only producing mine in the coal-rich Waterberg region through its flagship operation – Grootegeluk.

We strive for excellence in all we do.We are more than just a mining business: we strongly believe that making a positive impact on the world. Our purpose is to power better lives in Africa and beyond by responsibly investing in commodities that will sustain life on the continent. Our primary commodity – coal, fuels the energy and electricity requirements of South Africa. Our growth and innovation trajectory positions us to be a source of endless possibilities.
