These include the Magdalena bituminous mine and the Aviemore anthracite mine.The mines have a substantial combined resource of coal, and each mine has a projected life span in excess of 20 years.Growing junior coal marketForbes Coal is in the process of increasing production at both mines, and is looking to triple production from 2010 levels in the next three to four years using existing infrastructure and capacity.According to the statement, the company has in-place transportation infrastructure allowing its coal to reach both export corridors and the growing domestic coal market.“This listing allows the company to further raise its profile with South Africans and gives them the opportunity to invest in what we believe is a growing junior coal market,” said Theron.SAinfo reporterWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

It is also vital to acknowledge the contribution made by the volunteers and all of the fans who supported the event.“Finally, I would like to acknowledge the contribution of the media who played their part in the excellent coverage of the tournament.”Crowd supportThe Safa president said despite Bafana Bafana being knocked out in the quarter finals, South Africans continued to support the tournament until its conclusion, as was witnessed in the subsequent final four games.“As a nation, we did a great job in creating a hosting environment that made all of Africa feel welcome.“This morning I woke up as a proud South African, and am now looking forward to doing it all again in 2014 when South Africa hosts the African Nation Championships.”African Nations ChampionshipThe African Nations Championship (CHAN) is played every two years, alternating with the Africa Cup of Nations.

Two days after a cash van guard was shot dead outside a bank a few metres away from the Governor’s House here, the police are yet to nab the suspect who fled from the high-security zone on a motorcycle.The cops have, however, shortlisted 10 suspects from Lucknow as well as other districts and analysed footage from 50 CCTVs. The police have formed eight teams and are being assisted by the U.P. Special Task Force in the sensational daylight robbery and murder case.On the afternoon of July 30, a guard of a private cash collecting agency was shot dead and the driver injured by a suspect during a robbery.The suspect fled the scene on a motorbike with more than ₹6 lakh. According to footage of the crime released by the police, the suspect did not try to conceal his identity and brandished a pistol. The crime scene is also close to the official residence of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.SSP Lucknow Kalanidhi Naithani said that the suspect appeared to be a part of some organised gang. “It is organised though he was having a so-called country-made but branded pistol. It is clear he was not a petty criminal,” Mr. Naithani told The Hindu.The police have released a sketch of the suspect and announced a reward of ₹50,000 for anybody providing clues about him.ADG Law and Order Anand Kumar said the case was a ‘big challenge’ for the police. “We have some clues. We will work out the case at the earliest,” Mr. Kumar said in a video message on Twitter.
The Uttar Pradesh Cabinet on Tuesday empowered the urban and rural civic bodies to run temporary shelters to take care of stray cattle. A policy decision to this effect was taken in a Cabinet meeting chaired by Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, a government spokesperson said. He said with the machines having taken over the traditional methods of agriculture, the cattle owners often abandon their livestock, leading to problems like damage to crops, traffic disruptions and road accidents. The new policy will enable departments concerned to work in coordination with each other and achieve better results, he said. The State’s Animal Husbandry Department too will help the civic bodies in their endeavour, he said, adding the government will strive to make these “gauvansh ashray asthal” self-sustaining. Earlier last week, the Chief Minister had directed officials to make immediate arrangements for proper care of stray cows.
