Thungela Bursary 2024

About Thungela

Thungela Resources Limited is a prominent producer and exporter of the finest quality thermal coal across South Africa. In the isiZulu language, Thungela means to “ignite”. It was formed when South Africa’s thermal coal operations were separated from Anglo-American and in June 2021 was listed on the LSE and JSE.

The company is a reasonably new miner that mainly produces its thermal coal from 7 coal mines in the Mpumalanga province, South Africa, with high calorific value.

Thungela exports its thermal coal mainly to markets in India, SEA, Asia, North Africa, and the Middle East. The company aims to create value for the South African community, drive the economy and build a sustainable future for the coming generations.

As of December 2020, Thungela has up to 7525 employees and individual contractors. Apart from this, Thungela partners with third-party service providers as well. The company executes all its operations as per social, environmental, and governance (ESG) programs.

Thungela Resources Limited may be a new company in the mining industry, but its foundation and legacy in coal mining go way back in the year 1945. It is a future-driven thermal coal company that is highly focused on creating value for not just stakeholders but also South African society and communities.

The company efficiently conducts climate risk management, and land stewardship, along with promoting biodiversity and efficiently using the resources including energy and water. Along with this, Thungela also focuses on reducing waste generation and being careful of their operations’ impact on air quality.
