Kumba Resources, one of the largest South African-domiciled mining groups, is a focused metals and mining company with a diverse commodity portfolio consisting of iron ore, heavy minerals, coal, base metals and industrial minerals. The company’s strategic intent is to optimise its existing assets and to increase the size of its businesses through organic growth, acquisitions and mergers.

Proud of its South African roots, Kumba also has substantial links and growth prospects abroad and is widely recognised as one of South Africa’s major earners of foreign exchange.

The company boasts a substantial knowledge and skills base vested in carefully selected, demographically representative employees. Empowerment was part of our vision in 2001 when Kumba was born. It was our guiding principle in 2005 when we announced the creation of South Africa’s flagship empowerment company in the mining industry. It will become our reality in 2006 when we finalise the merger with Eyesizwe Coal to create a truly South African mining company worth R16 billion and listed on the JSE – a company owned andmanaged by black people, a company empowered by its stakeholders, assets and skills, and a significant contributor to our country’s growth and prosperity.

Kumba recently joined the ranks of the Peace Park Foundation’s Club 21, aimed at facilitating the establishment of transfrontier conservation areas.
