The Gauteng Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (GDARD) has refused to grant permission for the proposed Palmietkuilen Coal Mining Project. 

The FSE with other interested and affected parties lodged an objection with the Department of Mineral Resources against the proposed open cast coal mine to be situated on the Palmietkuilen farm in Lesedi.


The FSE’s objection is attached hereto.


This is a victory for the residents of Ekurhuleni and Lesedi that this proposed coal mine has been rejected.
