About Ecca

Incorporated in 2004 after founding and retaining a stake in Mashala Resources (Pty) Ltd, Ecca became very involved in the consolidation process which followed the promulgation of the new Minerals Act. The launch of NuCoal Mining (Pty) Ltd followed three years after Mashala, and Ecca was soon recognised as a niche operator in the facilitation of new and emerging mines.

Ecca’s strategy is to generate wealth for all its stakeholders by expanding it's participation in strategic alliances and operational joint ventures. Ecca provides its partners with engineering and technical expertise, mine modelling, systems management, structured finance, and commercial guidance. Ecca’s track record and credibility is a springboard to the broader industry network which makes any alliance with the Group very attractive.

Our Vision

Our vision is to be recognized as preferred strategic partners in the emerging and junior markets, to provide on-going value to our projects, and to create wealth for our stakeholders by exploiting the industry value chain and broadening the group’s JV exposure operationally.

Ecca is an environmentally conscious organisation and will continue its drive in developing Alternative Energy Recourses.
