Johannesburg, 07 April 2022: Seriti’s New Denmark Colliery, and our partners Joy Global Africa (Komatsu Mining Corp), have today handed over critical resources to the Inkazimulo Stimulation Centre in Standerton.
The Centre is a non-profit organization which was established in 1993 to provide a holistic and complete continuum of care for people living with disabilities including epilepsy, down syndrome, and autism. They provide this service within the Lekwa municipality, in Standerton.
Thabo Masike, Chief Corporate and Community Relations Officer at Seriti said: “April is world autism month and Seriti is heeding the UN call for companies to pledge to create a world where all people with disabilities, including autism, can reach their full potential.”
“Seriti continues to forge partnerships with its contractors and suppliers, to join in on the journey towards developing our local communities. Together we can change the lives of the many people in need in communities surrounding our operations, creating a lasting legacy for future generations.”
Seriti challenged our partners, Joy Global Africa (Komatsu Mining Corp), to assist in providing for the immediate needs of the Centre and its beneficiaries. Joy Global Africa (Komatsu Mining Corp) have risen to this challenge, and committed R500,000.00 in the last financial year to provide this support.
Today we are formally handing over this support from Joy Global Africa (Komatsu Mining Corp), – including gas heaters and stoves, maintenance equipment, office supplies and hardware, grocery supplies, and school uniforms. Joy Global Africa (Komatsu Mining Corp) will also assist with remuneration for staff and training for caregivers.
Dinah Williams, Transformation Director at Joy Global Africa (Komatsu Mining Corp) said: “Creating partnerships with customers sits high in the Joy Global Africa (Komatsu Mining Corp) transformation agenda. We are therefore pleased to have partnered with Seriti on this initiative, with the intent of promoting Skills Development and an improved teaching and learning environment for the teachers and learners alike.”

NOTE TO EDITORS
Seriti Resources Holdings is a broad-based, 91% black-owned and controlled coal mining company.
Seriti’s subsidiary, Seriti Coal operates three large-scale, opencast and underground thermal coal mines – the New Vaal, New Denmark and Kriel collieries, which respectively supply Eskom’s Lethabo, Tutuka and Kriel power stations. The New Largo mine is currently under development, to meet the needs of the adjacent Kusile power station.
On 1 June 2021, Seriti acquired the operations of SA Coal Holdings Proprietary Limited (SAEC) from South32, bringing into the fold four additional mines – the Khutala, Klipspruit, and Middelburg Mines Services (MMS) North and South mines, which provide coal to the Kendal and Duvha power stations, as well as export coal via the Richards Bay Coal Terminal.
Seriti is co-owned by four anchor shareholders – Masimong Group Holdings (Masimong), Community Investment Holdings (CIH), Zungu Investments (Zico) and Thebe Investment Corporation (Thebe). It is Seriti’s philosophy that 10% of the equity in its mining operations be ring-fenced equally for the benefit of employees and communities through established unencumbered employee and community trusts.
As a responsible South African coal miner, Seriti has a proven track record in the acquisition, operation and development of large-scale opencast and underground coal mines. Guided by experienced board and management teams, Seriti maintains a principle focus on its long-term commitment to the domestic market and, in particular, the reliable and cost-effective provision of coal to Eskom.
