The Hendrina coal mine was first proposed in 2016 by Umcebo Mining (Pty) Ltd, a subsidiary of Glencore Operations South Africa (Pty) Ltd, as an underground mine.[1]

The mining right application covers three discrete blocks of ground named Mooivley East, Mooivley West and Bosmanskrans. The area includes the national road N11 which connects Hendrina and Ermelo.[2]

As of December 31, 2019, the Hendrina Project was at an advanced exploration stage. A mining right application was accepted by the Department of Mineral Resources in June 2016. The application remains pending.[2]

The project's assets remain listed on Glencore's resources and reserves report in 2021.
