Coal seams are relatively thick and close to the surface which allows for low-cost mining a quarter of South Africa's bituminous coal is between 15-50 m below the surface and much of the remainder between 50-200m Half of reserves are in seams 4-6m thick and a further third in 2-4m seams (Petrick Commission 1975)
Mining in South Africa has been the main driving force behind the history and development of Africa's most advanced and richest economy Large scale and profitable mining started with the discovery of a diamond on the banks of the Orange River in 1867 by Erasmus Jacobs and the subsequent discovery and exploitation of the Kimberley pipes a few years later
There are four main mining methods underground open surface (pit) placer and in-situ mining Underground mines are more expensive and are often used to reach deeper deposits Surface mines are typically used for more shallow and less valuable deposits Placer mining is used to sift out valuable metals from sediments in river channels beach sands or other environments In-situ mining
