Universal Coal, a South African coal operator, said its Kangala operation in the Witbank coalfield, which completed its pit reconfiguration project last quarter, has hit a record 1.04 million metric tons (mt) of run-of-mine (ROM) production, a 47% year-over-year increase and was a 35% increase over the previous quarter. Total coal sales were also up quarter-on-quarter, coming in 39% higher than the previous quarter at about 609,000 tons (up 20% versus the same period in 2015). Whole-year, Kangala produced more than 3 million mt, and sold more than 2 million mt.
