The Weltevreden coal project is listed as a possible South African coal project in BHP Billiton's 2009 Annual Report. The company lists it as a possible open cut mine producing thermal coal. It lists its total resource as being 543 million tonnes. (Previously the company had considered developing the deposit via both an open cut and an underground mine but now shows it only as an open cut resource.)
BHP Billiton Energy Coal South Africa is BHP Billiton's wholly owned subsidiary which develops coal projects in South Africa.
