A shift to “regenerative mining” of coal reserves is a crucial part of a solution to a greener, cleaner future, said African Source Markets CEO Bevan Jones on Wednesday. Jones, a former commodity trader at Macquarie and Rand Merchant Bank, who cofounded the global coal market in London in the late 1990s, spoke to Mining Weekly about the just transition. The opportunity exists to create win-win, sustainable green revenue streams as coal mines approach closure through the simultaneous regeneration of a healthy soil-food-web, clean water and air.
