Exxaro:Considers disposal of NCC Operation


Diversified resources group Exxaro Resources Limited (Exxaro) reports today that it is starting a process that may result in the disposal of its New Clydesdale Colliery (NCC) operation situated near eMalahleni in Mpumalanga.

Exxaro has recently had a number of unsolicited approaches to acquire its NCC asset. As NCC is a relatively short life-of-mine and lower margin asset, the group will embark on a process of testing whether potential third party buyers can generate greater value from this unique asset.

This process may therefore result in a disposal of NCC to a suitably qualified operator, allowing Exxaro to focus on its core portfolio and delivery of its growth prospects.

The group is calling for expressions of interest from parties interested in acquiring the assets and liabilities of the NCC operation.

In 2012 NCC produced 717kt of A-grade steam coal, most of which was exported.
