kolomela iron ore mine, northern cape, south africa

The mine is operated by the Anglo American group company Kumba Iron Ore through its subsidiary Sishen Iron Ore Company (SIOC). SIOC is 76.3% owned by Kumba while the remaining interest is held by Black Economic Empowerment (BEE) shareholders.

The mine consists of seven open pits, including Leeuwfontein, Welgevonden, Kapstevel and Klipbankfontein. It started commercial production in December 2011 and was awarded ISO 14001 certification in July 2013. Kolomelas life is estimated to be 14 years, with potential for further expansion.

Formerly known as the Sishen South project, the Kolomela mine project is a direct shipping iron ore project completed in late 2011. The project surpassed the expected full-scale production capacity of nine million tonnes per annum (Mtpa) in 2013.

Production at the mine increased by 9% following the implementation of the companys Operating Model in 2017. The model follows a phased implementation beginning at the project set-up phase and terminating with the stabilisation and sustaining phases.

The Kolomela mine comprises three separate ore bodies located on the southern tilt of the iron bearing belt that hosts the Sishen deposit towards the north. The lithologies are identified to be of Griqualand West Supergroup. The ore bodies delineate the western margin of the Kaapvaal Craton in the Northern Cape province.

The ore bodies measure up to 2km in length, 400m in width and 300m in depth. The deposit consists of four varieties of high-grade haematite ores, namely clastic-textured (29%), laminated (53%), collapse breccia (10%) and conglomeratic (8%). The lump to fine ratio of the ore is 60:40.

The extracted ore from the mine is sent to the nearby processing plant. The ore undergoes primary, secondary and tertiary crushing at the plant. The crushed ore is scalped and screened before being sent to the stockyard.

The mine has a stacker-reclaiming facility, at which different grades of processed ore are blended to ensure the grade requirements of the clients. Sishen mines products are also blended with the mines products before the final shipment of the ore.

The export ore is sent via a conveyor to the load-out terminal of the mine. From there, it is transported via the newly constructed 36km rail line linking the Sishen-Saldanha export line connected to the Saldanha Bay Port.

Hatch was awarded the R2.5bn ($276m) engineering, procurement, project and construction management (EPCM) contract for the project. The company was responsible for delivering the crushing and sizing plant, stockyard facilities, as well as the rail truck loading station.

Murray & Roberts Construction unit Concor Roads & Earthworks carried out the earthworks, as well the construction of a new railway line connecting the iron ore mine with the Sishen-Saldanha export line. It also received several other contracts in 2012 for additional construction works of the project.
