Sekoko Resources is in talks to supply coal to Eskom Holdings Ltd, Bloomberg recently reported. South Africa’s Department of Minerals & Energy has granted Sekoko a permit to begin mining at its Waterberg coal project and tests by Eskom showed the fuel met its prescribed quality standards. Sekoko plans to begin processing about 60,000 metric tons a month (mt/m) of coal bearing ore by the end of this year from its Waterberg operation through a joint venture with Australia’s Firestone Energy. Processing of the ore will provide between 30,000 mt/m and 40,000 mt/m of saleable coal.
