About

At Jabali Mining Services, we are clear about how we want to do business - we put back more than we extract. We live by this ethos everyday, on each contract and with each business decision we make. This makes Jabali true to its Swahili meaning: as strong as a rock.

ethos

Mining experts that put back more than we extract

Jabali is a Swahili word meaning as strong as a rock. At Jabali Mining Services, we’ve built our business on rock-hard foundations. We are the rock that our clients can depend on for mining services that add value, every time. And we are uncompromising about how we want to do business - we put back more than we extract.

We live by this ethos everyday, on each contract and with each business decision we make.

Jabali is built on decades of success, led by the incomparable founders, Piet Cilliers and Louis Swart. For over thirty years, Jabali grew under their stewardship, and the current leadership was able to mine the incredible wealth of knowledge of these well-respected stalwarts and their management team. With a progressive mindset, Jabali has embarked on the next phase of its proud history.

Jabali’s philosophy is to ensure that it unearths value and the collective knowledge of a team experienced in mining various commodities, including coal, platinum, chrome, quartz, vanadium, iron ore, gold, dimension stone granite, vermiculite and manganese. Whatever the commodity, Jabali works to make certain that its presence results in an improved business, uplifted communities and the potential for yet more growth for all stakeholders.
