Powering Possibility

Exxaro has established itself as one of South Africa’s largest black-empowered resource companies. We are among the top five coal producers in South Africa, and a constituent of the JSE’s Top 40 index. What’s more, we are included in the FTSE/JSE Responsible Investment Top 30 index.


Exxaro operates in both the Mpumalanga and Limpopo regions, where the country’s highest coal resource concentrations can be found. 80% of the coal is sold to domestic markets, with the balance sold internationally. Equipped with a diversified portfolio of assets and a solid resource base, we are also the only producing mine in the coal-rich Waterberg region through our flagship operation – Grootegeluk.


At Exxaro, we strive for excellence in everything we do. We are more than just a mining business: we strongly believe in making a positive impact in 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 consumed by South Africans. Our growth and innovation trajectory positions us to be a source of endless possibilities
