Milele Mining and Resources projects include developers and producers of high-quality RB1, RB2 and RB3 coal, along with copper, gold and silver mining operations. Milele Group’s Mining’s main coal mining operations and reserves are based in South Africa specialising in RB1, RB2 and RB3 coal alongside high-quality anthracite coal and further expansion plans within South Africa and Zimbabwe.

Milele Mining and Resources investments include equity and mezzanine investments in operating collieries in South Africa, and a valuable suite of coal resources in evaluation and feasibility phases globally. The life of mine (“LoM”) on both operational and development collieries ranges from short term (1-3 years) all the way through to long term assets with estimated LoM exceeding 25+ years; enabling Millele Mining and Resources projects to grow well into the future.

Most projects benefit from excellent access to rail and port infrastructure and strategic investments are also planned for these parts of the coal value chain, allowing Milele Mining and Resources to effectively service domestic and international markets; providing a much-needed resource for economic growth and development for the countries and the provinces in which Milele Mining and Resources projects operate.

We have invested in South Africa based on our belief that the country and the mining and natural resources sector in particular is poised for substantial growth in the coming years.

Commodity platforms
We pursue investment opportunities according to four commodity platforms: Energy, Precious Metals, Base Metals, Ferrous (or Industrial).

Our long-term view is to have strong presence across all these platforms, however in the short-term we aim to focus on and build critical mass in the coal environment.

Investment approach
A typical mine lifecycle can be segmented generally into four stages along its development value curve: Exploration, Pre-Development, Development Capital Expenditure and Production.
