Coal miner Sasol is investing R3.1bn ($418.6m) in an export coal mine to replace the depleting Twisdraai operation.

The Thubelisha export coal mine, which is currently under construction, will also supply Sasol's synfuels factory in Secunda, in Mpumalanga province, SA.

The Thubelisha replacement mine is expected to have a capacity to produce between 9.5 million tons and 10.5 million tons a year.

Twistdraai and Brandspruit will be mined out soon, with Thubelisha and Impumulelo being developed to replace them.
