Progress on the Vanggatfontein Project has been good, with the 5-Seam plant
operating to design, with excellent acceptance of the metallurgical coal product
by the domestic market and consequent strong sales.
The construction and commissioning of the 4- and 2-Seam plant was on track to
deliver the full ramp-up commitment of thermal coal to Eskom by the end of July
2011. However, Vanggatfontein`s ability to meet this commitment may be affected
by a recent incident in which the support structure for one of the Dense Medium
Separation unit feed bins failed during pre-commissioning.
Management is working closely with DRA Mineral Projects (Pty) Limited, the lump-
sum turnkey contractor responsible for construction of the plant, to mitigate
the incident`s effect. While the financial implications of the incident have yet
to be established, insurance cover is in place.
