The coal-fired power plants are designed with a coal mine next to them for the ease of supplying coal in a system called a ’tied-colliery’ contract. These are long-term contracts meant to ensure coal supply security to the power stations. However, road transport is used to supplement coal supply to the power stations which are already being supplied via conveyor belts as the respective mines

Auger mining operations drill a series of parallel holes perpendicular to the highwall, leaving adequately sized pillars between holes to maintain the stability of the highwall and overlying surface area. The technique is also commonly used to recover coal beneath surface features which limit surface mining, such as rivers and roads.

The future of coal in South Africa - MICROMINE
