Quality coal seams have led to the establishment of more than 22 collieries in the municipal district. In addition, with the supply of coal nearby, there are a number of power stations attracting industries that depend on heavy electricity usage.

Another booming business area in Witbank is power generation. This is a direct result of the coal mining activities in the town. The power stations in the area rely on the nearby mines to supply them with the required coal for power generation.

Given the area’s natural wealth, it is hardly surprising that Witbank has experienced such promising growth over the past 100 years. The town has grown into a business hub in the province, where companies and private citizens alike have found substantial returns on their investment.
