Bordering the Gauteng and Mpumalanga border, Canyon Coal’s Phalanndwa Mine is nestled between Eskom’s Kendal and Kusile Power Stations, surrounded by other coal mines and tiny communities – about 10km from Delmas and in the heart of a coal rich region of the Highveld.

It was the site of a media tour on Wednesday, 6 September, where print, radio and broadcast journalists were invited to interact with GM Alan Mabbett and have a look around the mine – which at 120 000 t/m has been operating since October 2010.
