Phase One Heritage Impact Assessment Of The Proposed Alleen 2 Open Cast Extension, Magdalena Colliery in Dannhauser, KwaZulu-Natal. Heritage Impact Assessment conducted as part of the Basic Assessment for the proposed extension of open cast mining at Alleen 2. Zinoju Coal (Pty) Ltd proposes the extension of open cast mining area at the Magdalena Colliery by 55 hectares, located approximately 25km north-northwest of the town of Dundee, GPS Co-ordinates: 27° 56' 55.64”S; 30° 10' 39.28”E, KwaZulu-Natal. Magdalena Colliery is an existing coal mine with an approved Environmental Management Programme (EMPR) in accordance with the Minerals Petroleum Resource Development Act (Act 28 of 2002) (MPRDA). However, it is now the intention of Zinoju Coal (Pty) Ltd to extend the site’s open cast mining area in order to accommodate the operational life of the company’s mining operations at the Magdalena Colliery. An application for extension of the discard dump on site is currently underway (EIA Ref. No.: DC25/0018/2012). An application to amend the approved EMPR to include the open cast extension has been submitted to the Department of Mineral Resources (DMR).
