2018-5-25  South Africa contributes about 3.5% of the world’s coal resources. The country’s production is around 3.3% of the world’s annual total and exports approximately 6% of global exports. Coal is the major primary energy source for South Africa. than 90% of the country’s electricity and approximately 30% of the liquid fuel are produced from coal (DoE, 2016). Coal also plays a significant role in supply to the South African chemicals industry and is an essential component of its steelmaking industry. Despite the country’s attempts at diversifying energy, coal is expected to play a major role in the foreseeable future and it is the leading mining commodity revenue generator in South Africa.
