About Us

Creative and passionate - our people always strive to deliver superior service and innovative processing solutions

Our History

CoalMin was founded in 2015 by a group of innovative entrepreneurs who saw an opportunity to turn waste material in slurry ponds and dumps into value. At a time when legislative requirements were becoming a liability for our clients, the CoalMin value proposition to turn environmental liability into a mutually profitable exercise, for both client and CoalMin, was an attractive proposition. To achieve this objective, a highly competent staff compliment was required and a R&D capability needed to be built.
