Increase in shareholding in Waterberg One Coal
Resource Generation has moved to tidy up the ownership of its shareholding in
Waterberg One Coal (Pty) Limited (WOC). Currently WOC is owned 70% by Resource
Generation and 30% by Lukale Mining Company (Pty) Limited (Lukale). Following the
agreed transaction, WOC will be owned 74% by Resource Generation and 26% by Fairy
Wing Trading 136 (Pty) Limited (FWT), the same shareholding split as Ledjadja Coal
(Pty) Limited (Ledjadja), which owns the mining right for the Boikarabelo mine.
For the sale of its shareholding, Lukale will receive ZAR25 million in Resource
Generation shares at $0.40 per share, subject to shareholder approval at the forthcoming
Annual General Meeting, and ZAR20 million cash. The shares will be held on the South
African register and be eligible for sale on the JSE. FWT is being lent ZAR39 million on
commercial terms by Resource Generation to fund its acquisition of WOC shares.
WOC?s main prospecting right, Waterberg One, is contiguous with the Boikarabelo
mining right and contains an indicated resource of 1,116.4 million tonnes and a measured
resource of 865.5 million tonnes, including a probable reserve of 314.2 million tonnes*.
Paul Jury, managing director, said: ?this ownership change and alignment will enable a
practical consolidation of our mining tenements to occur and make it easier to manage the
operations of Boikarabelo. Our expectation is to open a separate pit at Waterberg One to
supply domestic grade coal to Eskom and the independent power stations intended to be
developed by Valu Investments Pte Ltd.?
