Keaton Energy Holdings’ (KEH) subsidiary Keaton Mining delivered 154‚041 tonnes of coal from its Vanggatfontein mine to Eskom in July 2012‚ a new record.

This new production record is a stunning achievement by the operations team‚ coming in the month when Liviero Mining took over the mining at Vanggatfontein following the termination of Megacube Mining´s contract‚” said Mandi Glad‚ Keaton Energy´s Operations Director.

Rowan Karstel‚ Keaton Energy´s newly appointed CEO‚ added: “Vanggatfontein performed superbly during July despite operational challenges‚ and we expect more records to follow. With an equally strong and consistent performance at our KZN anthracite operations‚ we have a strong base from which to grow our company.” - I-Net Bridge
