The Waterberg mine is located in the Bushveld Igneous complex, approximately 85km north of Mokopane town in Limpopo Province, South Africa. The project is jointly owned by Platinum Group 37.5, Japan Oil, Gas and Metals National Corporation JOGMEC, 21.95, Impala Platinum Holdings Implats 15 and Mnombo Wethu Consultants 26, while Platinum Group is the operator.
Underground multiseam mining of the Waterberg resources is expected to involve different design and operational factors from current mining at the Witbank and Highveld coalfields. Underground mining with a highextraction mining method such as longwall would be preferable in order to deliver coal at the highest tonnages at a low cost for power
Multiseam mining The mining of multiple seams has long been practised at the Khutala Colliery. By definition, multiseam coal mining is the mining of coal seams that overlay each other in a vertical depositional sequence. The seams are separated by rock strata known as parting3. The area of investigation for the new panel
This challenge is further amplified by the fact that South Africa currently does not have experience in mining deep, multiseam coal formations.ud While the shallow reserves in the western portion of the Waterberg are currently mined by an openpit, the deep eastern part will need to be exploited by multiseam underground mining on a scale
mining deep, multiseam coal formations. While the shallow reserves in the western portion of the Waterberg are currently mined by an openpit, the deep eastern part will need to be exploited by multiseam underground mining on a scale never before attempted in South Africa. This
Interest in mining the deep seabed is not new however, recent technological advances and increasing global demand for metals and rareearth elements may make it economically viable in the near future .Since 2001, the International Seabed Authority ISA has granted 26 contracts 18 in the last 4 years to explore for minerals on the deep seabed, encompassing 1 million km 2 in the Pacific

CiteSeerX Document Details Isaac Councill, Lee Giles, Pradeep Teregowda From local and international experience, it is known that coal mining has a pronounced impact on surface and groundwater quality and quantity. The influx of water may be as low as 1 of rainfall for deep border and pillar mines with no subsidence, to as much as 20 for some opencast mines Hodgson et al. 2007.
Conclusion Waterberg Coalfield contains a substantial resource base Largest part 60 is deep coal underground extraction Grootegeluk Formation contains the bulk of the resources. Total coal yield on ROM from this formation is 50 most of it suitable for power generation Large beneficiation plants capitalvolume Large amounts of waste plant discards
