Zinoju (Pty) Ltd operates the mine, which is owned by Buffalo Coal. The mine produces Anthracite coal mostly for domestic steel markets although a weakening domestic situation have led Buffalo Coal to seek export opportunities as well. There are estimated reserves of 780,000 tonnes run-of-mine remains at the Aviemore site and the mine is expected to have depleted these reserves by December 2022. [1] [2] [3]
