Enkangala Grassland Mining Engagement

Over the last five years, prospecting and mining applications have expanded to cover over 50% of Mpumalanga (which comprises almost 80% coal mining/prospecting applications) with extensive areas in Northern KZN and parts of the Free State province.

Considering the potential negative impact of these prospects, especially on water and food security, the programme is aimed at ensuring that measures are put in place in order to minimize the potential damage that mining applications may have in the region.

In addition, the initiative is also targeted at areas with high biodiversity value, which, if mined would pose a threat to provincial conservation agencies and their targets.
