Mmamantswe Coal Project
The Mmamantswe Project contains approximately 1,243Mt of thermal coal in Measured and Indicated Resources which is suitable for power generation in a captive power station. Several studies on coal preparation and power station design were completed by the previous project owner, including grid integration studies for power sales into the South African grid. The project is only 20km from the South African border and is close to the regional power transmission grid and planned grid expansions into South Africa. African Energy has applied for Land Rights over the project area, access corridor and grid connection corridor.
The Company notes that the recently released draft of South Africa’s Integrated Resource Plan no longer explicitly lists the importation of coal-fired power and is seeking clarification of this position prior to determining the optimum project development plan.
