The Mayor of Lephalale Municipality, Cllr. Jack Moloko Maeko, welcomes you to Lephalale - "the heartbeat of the Waterberg Bushveld" and the South African Provincial and National Development Node for Mining and Energy Generation.
Lephalale Local Municipality is currently one of the fastest growing municipalities in the country and governs a town that has the potential to become the future hub of power generation in South Africa.
The municipality is working hand in hand with several stakeholders to build a vibrant city situated at the heart of the Waterberg coalfield. This coalfield is estimated to contain between 40 and 50% of SA's remaining coal reserves.
Conventional wisdom is that the future of SA coal mining depends on the development of this extensive deposit of coal surrounding the town of Lephalale. There is no doubt that Lephalale will soon be a forerunner in the mining sector.
