Subsurface data from over 1200 boreholes in the Witbank basin coalfield provided information for determining the coalfield stratigraphy and the palaeoenvironmental controls on coal distribution. The inadequacies of existing coalfield lithostratigraphy are obviated by the erection of a genetic coalfield stratigraphy. A total of ten areally extensive defined marker surfaces resolve the ...

Witbank coalfield, Witbank, Nkangala District, Mpumalanga ...

The Witbank coalfield is, historically, the most important coal-producing region in South Africa. Bituminous coal is hosted in the Permian Vryheid Formation (Karoo Supergroup) and five coal seams exist in the region, although not all are economically exploitable. About 22 coal mines in the area around Witbank. Some dumps are burning, in part ...

Characterization of the coal resources of South Africa

The main coal mining areas are presently in the Witbank-Middelburg, Ermelo and Standerton-Secunda areas of Mpumalanga, around Sasolburg-Vereeniging in the Free State/Gauteng and in northwestern KwaZulu- Natal where smaller operations are found. Single, although large, collieries are found near Ellisras and Tshipise.

ARNOT COAL MINE - Home Exxaro

The Arnot operation lies close to the eastern edge of the Witbank coalfield, close to the margin of the Main Karoo Basin in which the stratigraphic column is reduced to 80m but still contains coal seams correlating to the five classical (#1-5) Witbank coalfield seams. The pre-Karoo basement topography consists of both felsites and diabase intrusives associated with the Transvaal Supergroup and ...
