Morupule Coal Mine (MCM) has clinched a three-year deal to supply BCL Mine with coal. Through renewed long-term Coal Supply Agreement, MCM will supply BCL 80,000 tonnes of coal in each contract year.

BCL uses coal in processing of metal at the smelter. “MCM will be responsible for transporting this coal to BCL using part of a fleet of rail wagons dedicated to MCM by Botswana Railways,” BCL stated.

MCM started production of the commodity in 1973 as an Anglo American Corporation subsidiary with the main objective being to supply coal to the then Bamangwato Concessions Limited mine (now BCL) and BPC power plant situated in Selebi Phikwe. In 2000 Debswana acquired 100% ownership of MCM, and the company has since grown to be the dominant player in the coal mining sector in the country.
