Centaur Mining companies and projects include developers and producers of high-quality RB1, RB2 and RB3 coal, along with copper, gold and silver mining operations. Centaur Mining’s main coal mining operations and reserves are based in South Africa specialising in RB1, RB2 and RB3 coal alongside high-quality anthracite coal and further expansion plans within South Africa, Namibia and Zimbabwe.



Centaur Mining investments include equity and mezzanine investments in operating collieries in South Africa, and a valuable suite of coal resources in evaluation and feasibility phases globally.
