Yoctolux Collieries

Yoctolux Collieries (Pty) Ltd., (“Yoctolux Collieries”), was the group's first opencast coal mining operation located near the town of Middleburg and borders the central Witbank coalfield which forms part of the Highveld Coalfield. The Yoctolux Coal Project comprises an area of 155.9ha situated on Portion 38 of the Farm Elandspruit 291.

Yoctolux Collieries commenced operations in May 2014 and completed the life-of-mine mining of the reserve in May 2018.

Yoctolux Collieries represents the track record of the successful execution of a full life cycle of the Mineral Resource Development Value Curve, culminating in the completed process of mine development, and life-of-mine operation. Yoctolux continues to operate the site as a Coal Washing and Blending Operation, leveraging its plant infrastructure and regulatory dispensation in a Coal Trading Enterprise.

Yoctolux Collieries serves as an example of how the opportunities afforded by the provisions of the MPRDA, if linked to entrepreneurial capital and enterprising management teams, can be leveraged for the establishment of junior mining companies. The Tala Group is well positioned to unlock new economic and social enterprise value, for all stakeholders associated with its mining operations.
