Project Title:

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

   
Project Synopsis: The Anglo American Coal South Africa (AACSA) 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) and Environmental Management Programme (EMP) in terms of the National Environmental Management Act (NEMA, Act 107 of 1998 as amended in December 2014) for the construction and operation of a coal de-stoning plant and associated infrastructure, for submission to the Mpumalanga Department of Mineral Resources (DMR);
  • An update and amendment 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 and Sanitation (DWS).
AACSA 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 and NWA. The Scoping Report for Public Review is now available for public comment for a period of thirty (30) days as from 15 May 2015 to 15 June 2015.
