The New Clydesdale coal mine is located some 140 kilometres east of Johannesburg in Mpumalanga, South Africa.

On its website Exxaro states that "this underground mine employs almost 400 people and produces 1,4Mtpa of A- and D-grade thermal coal primarily for sale to the export market. Coal is mined using both open-pit and underground methods. The mine has a reserve base of 14Mt and a resource of 41Mt. Eyesizwe Coal has applied for the requisite mining rights in terms of the MPRDA [Minerals and Petroleum Resources Development Act - ed] to enable it to continue operating the New Clydesdale mine. In the event that the requisite mining rights are not granted, the purchase price for Eyesizwe Coal will be adjusted and the New Clydesdale mine restituted as described in the Kumba circular.[1] The mine owned by Exxaro Coal, a wholly owned subsidiary of the South African mining company Exxaro.[2]
