South Africa’s sole producer of prime anthracite, Zululand Anthracite Colliery, has appointed Siyabonga Mathonsi as its first black general manager since mining operations began in 1987. Menar, the mining investment company that acquired ZAC from Rio Tinto in 2016 and turned it to profitability, has announced Mathonsi’s appointment effective from 15 July 2019.

Menar’s Managing Director Mr Vuslat Bayoglu says Mathonsi is a hard-working professional who worked himself up the management ladder of the mine. The appointment is a clear demonstration that, with adequate training and experience, coupled with the commitment to redressing the legacy of apartheid, substantive transformation is achievable. Menar is committed to ensuring that all employees of its subsidiary companies regardless of their background realise their potential.

Following a smooth handover period, Bradley Hammond, the outgoing general manager, will take over a new role as group chief operating officer at Menar.
