dc.description.abstract A methodology to identify and map spontaneous combustion risk is developed by means of mapping. It has been achieved by using a Geographic Information System (GIS) tool. The factors affecting spontaneous combustion are mapped using ILWIS in a raster format. The raster maps are assigned ratings to indicate hazard level and then weighted. A risk map is obtained by combining the weighted maps. Several laboratory tests have been carried out to determine the Wits-Ehac index of coal from the Witbank Coalfield, and these are included in the risk calculation as a risk factor. en
