Benga coal mine

Report summary

Benga was the second export mine, after Moatize, to be established in Mozambique’s Tete Province. Benga, covered by the 3365C mining lease (previously 881L), began operations in 2012. Operations were suspended in December 2015 due to the low coal price environment, but restarted in March 2018. The mine produces hard coking coal and thermal coal for the export market. In October 2014, Rio Tinto completed the sale of its interests in Mozambique to International Coal Ventures Limited (ICVL). Tata owns the remaining shareholding in Benga, as part of a joint venture.
