Haul roads at Kieprsol Mine

A coal export mine under construction in the Piet Retief area is connected to a Provincial Road by an unsurfaced road (some 17 kms) which is subject to storm damage and flooding. Interlink trucks with a payload of 60 tons use this road for continuous hauling (a fleet of some 15 trucks) of coal to the Piet Retief railhead on the Richards Bay Coal Export rail. Jindal Mining Africa commissioned GCS to design a road which in the initial stages will be stabilised but unsurfaced with the intention to tar the roadway once the cash flow from this mine is self-sufficient.
