The purpose of the Marketing BU is to sustainably maximise cash flows from the marketing of Anglo American products and services. In support of this, we have set ourselves a target to deliver a considerable uplift in PBT by 2023.

Within the South African Coal Business unit, we are transitioning to a more flexible, more agile and more value focused direction. Consequently, we are placing heightened emphasis on the degree to which our sales/contracting position is both flexible and market applicable. Thus ensuring that Anglo Coal maximises value from its sales position.

The South African Coal Business unit has, amongst the existing Equity domestic sales, established 3rd party sourcing and trading; as well as origination and Mineral Residue Deposits (MRD) material transactions. These MRD transactions, in conjunction with the effective sourcing and trading of coal transactions, are critical to value generation.


Support the execution of the Physical Sourcing, trading, origination and sales strategies for in-county coal transactions within the region in line with the overall Trading strategy and within risk tolerances and governance frameworks.

Provide specialist support to the Marketing Manager – South Africa on the domestic market opportunities to achieve maximum commercial value.
