Petmin hopeful of resolving Somkhele mine expansion obstacles soon

Anthracite miner Petmin has reiterated its hope that community issues and two court cases can be overcome and dealt with so that it can progress with the expansion of its Somkhele anthracite mine, about 85 km north of Richards Bay, in KwaZulu-Natal.

Expansion of the mine has been hotly contested in the nearby communities since the miner expressed plans to expand as the current orebody reaches the end of mine life.
