How many mines does Sasol have?


Sasol Mining operates six coal mines that supply feedstock for our Secunda (Sasol Synfuels) and Sasolburg (Sasolburg Operations) complexes in South Africa. While the coal we supply to Sasol Synfuels is mainly used as gasification feedstock, some is used to generate electricity.

The coal we supply to the Sasolburg Operations is used to generate electricity and steam. We also export coal from the Twistdraai Export Plant to international power generation customers. For us at Sasol Mining, we are enabling our people to reach their full potential in capability with ZERO HARM whilst improving their wellbeing.

We promote social and economic development in South Africa by implementing Social Labour Plans (SLPs) and Local Economic Development Projects (LEDs).

Our neighbours in municipalities across Mpumalanga and Free State provinces have benefitted in many ways from a variety of projects, including Multi-Purpose Centre, Energy Efficient High Mast Lights, and Waste Water Treatment Plant and Sewerage Reticulation Upgrades. Our culture journey is aligned with our Siyenza (We Do!) transformation project and set up to help us reach our vision of becoming ‘a revered mining company delivery sustainable value’.

We have a special focus on diversity and have launched our Women in Mining forum, special PPE for our female colleagues, anti-Sexual harassment campaigns, studies and interventions, EE roadshows, and the like. We are transforming for the future!
