Overview of Revuboè
Located in the Revuboè section of the Moatize basin and covering an area of approximately 3,860 hectares, the project site lies approximately 12 km north-east of the town of Tete, immediately west of the Revuboè River and east of the Mepuno River within Prospecting and Exploration Licence 693L. The site is 5.1 km from north to south and 8.5 km from east to west. It is bordered by Rio Tinto’s Benga and Zambeze projects and Vale’s Moatize project.
The Revuboè Mine Project has been identified as a strategic opportunity to produce coking coal and thermal coal for the export market. Strong demand growth is forecast for metallurgical coal, with most demand growth from the developing economies with rising steel production, such as India, China and Brazil.
Revuboè has two proposed coal products; a coking coal and a thermal stream. First production is expected in 2-3 years after the last approval is obtained.
Access to the site will be from the south immediately to the east of the Tete airport. Workshop, administration complex, communications and other services will be established for the mine. An accommodation village will also be established to house employees on the concession area. Learn more about infrastructure plans for the mine here.
The regional geological sequence comprises alternating sandstones, siltstones and coal seams, with the Bananeiras and Chipanga seams constituting the prime mining targets. Read about the Geology of Revuboè.
