Project Title:

ENVIRONMENTAL AUTHORISATION FOR THE PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT OF A COAL DE-STONING PLANT AND ASSOCIATED DISCARD DISPOSAL SITE FOR ANGLO AMERICAN THERMAL COAL’S NEW DENMARK COLLIERY NEAR STANDERTON, MPUMALANGA PROVINCE

   
Project Synopsis:

The Anglo American Thermal Coal (AATC) New Denmark Colliery (NDC) near Standerton in the Lekwa Local Municipality, Mpumalanga Province is the primary supplier of coal to Eskom’s Tutuka Power Station. NDC proposes to establish a coal de-stoning plant to meet Eskom’s requirement for improved quality coal, by removing impurities such as stone and shale from the raw coal, and supplying improved quality or ‘washed’ coal. Before NDC can commence with the proposed project, the following environmental authorisation applications need to be undertaken:


•    An Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) in terms of the National Environmental Management Act (NEMA, Act 107 of 1998) for the construction and operation of a coal de-stoning plant, for submission to the Mpumalanga Department of Economic Development, Environment and Tourism;
•    An amendment to the NDC’s Environmental Management Programme Report (EMPR) as required under the Mineral Resources and Petroleum Development Act (MPRDA, Act 28 of 2002), for submission to the Department of Mineral Resources; and
•    A review and update of the Integrated Water Use Licence (IWULA) and accompanying Integrated Waste and Water Management Plan (IWWMP) under the National Water Act (NWA, Act 36 of 1998) for submission to the Department of Water Affairs.


AATC New Denmark Colliery has appointed SRK Consulting as the independent Environmental Assessment Practitioner to undertake the environmental authorisation and associated stakeholder engagement process. An integrated process will be followed to meet the requirements of the NEMA, NWA and MPRDA. The Draft Scoping Report is now available for public comment for a period of forty (40) days as from 12 August 2013 to 23 September 2013.
