Presentation of Prof. May Hermanus

A number of South African coal mines are destined for closure within the next decade, signaling the end of mining in a major coal mining district. The challenge is to ensure that local communities enjoy developmental opportunities after the mines have ceased to operate. Coal mine closure will take place in a new policy setting
in which abandonment is not permitted, mines are obligated to develop social and labour plans for host communities and employees, and mines are expected to launch sustainable economic projects. This presentation shows that mining companies can work together with stakeholders to improve closure outcomes.
