Riversdale to Start Coal Output at Mozambique’s Zambeze in 2014

March 3 (Bloomberg) -- Riversdale Mining Ltd., an Australian mining company, will start production at its Zambeze coal project in Mozambique in 2014, said David West, its principal geologist in the southern African country.

Riversdale has 10 drill rigs on site and an exploration staff of 60 people, including 26 geologists, who are currently completing a feasibility study, West said in an e-mailed response to questions today.

The project has an estimated coal resource of 9 billion metric tons, more than double the Benga project that will start exporting in September, he said. Riversdale will probably initially produce 45 million metric tons of coal a year from Zambeze, West said.
