Kangra Coal Gives Green Light for Yellow Machines

At the beginning of 2013, two Eickhoff continuous miners commenced production at South African underground operation Savmore colliery after the owner of the mine, Kangra Coal (Pty) Ltd., commissioned their own mining operations in their 1.8- to 2-m Dundas low seam area. Currently one low profile Eickhoff CM2H-30 and another recently refurbished Eickhoff CM2H-37 are successfully cutting at the Maquasa Adits on a 10-production shifts per week roster and two maintenance shifts per month. Kangra Coal employs about 720 staff and annually extracts approximately 4 million metric tons of raw coal from the operations that are located approximately 60 km west of Piet Retief, Mpumalanga province.
