Jindal Africa’s operational activities in the country include the Kiepersol Colliery, which is an underground operation located within the boundaries of the Mkhondo Local Municipality, adjacent to the R543 route between Piet Retief and Wakkerstroom, in Mpumalanga, South Africa.
South Africa joining India in the BRICS club of developing economies gives weight to this inspired move by Jindal Africa. Since its inception in November 2008, Jindal Africa has remained committed to the prospect of continuous growth on the continent, setting their foothold solidly at the centre of South Africa’s vibrant economic landscape through the construction of their new corporate head office in Bryanston, Johannesburg.
Kiepersol Colliery, like many coal producers, has held its stand amidst the challenges faced during the last annual period. Jindal Africa remains committed to the important role that coal plays in the South African economy, its role as a primary energy source for electricity generation, as well as direct and indirect job creation.
