Beacon Hill negotiating Sena Line quota
London, 5 Oct (AIM) – The London-based mining company Beacon Hill Resources has announced that formal negotiations have begun with Mozambique’s publicly owned ports and rail company, CFM, to finalise an allocation on the Sena rail line to take the company’s coal from the Moatize coal basin in the western province of Tete to the port of Beira.
According to Beacon Hill, negotiations are “progressing well” and the initial allocation should be agreed by the end of this year.
Beacon Hill is the owner of the open cast coal mine Minas de Moatize, and has 18,000 tonnes of coal waiting at the port in Beira for shipping at the end of October. It is currently transporting coal from Moatize to Beira by truck.
Minas de Moatize is continuing with its expansion plans to increase capacity from 600,000 to 1.8 million tonnes of ROM (run of the mine) coal per year by the end of 2012. In the third phase, capacity will increase to 4 million tonnes per year by the second half of 2014.
Meanwhile, CFM is still upgrading the Sena line so that it will have a capacity of 6.5 million tonnes per year, with the work due to be completed by the end of November. That capacity is then intended to be increased to 12 million tonnes per annum next year.
Independent experts believe that over the next decade coal exports from the Zambezi coal basin by several companies will reach 100 million tonnes per year, making Mozambique one of the world’s largest coal exporters.
