Wescoal Mining

‘The South African coal market requires substantial investment and recapitalisation to meet both domestic and export requirements. As part of its growth strategy, Wescoal has ambitions to play a significant role in consolidating the junior coal mining sector.

Wescoal has taken the first step towards realisation the consolidation imperative by concluding the acquisition of Keaton Energy Holdings. Over and above the enlarged group benefiting from an increased resource base, diverse asset and shareholder base, economies of scale, synergies and enhanced production and cash generation, the transaction creates an entity with enough scale to realistically take aim at becoming a major player in the sector.’
Robinson Ramaite – Non Executive Chairman


We will be a dynamic black-owned and black led coal company which champions socio-economic change and transformation. We will lead the industry in environmental sustainability, stakeholder partnerships with communities, employees and shareholders.
