AEMFC remains deeply concerned about the devastating effect of the COVID 19 virus that has swept across the world, affecting many lives in our country, threatening the families and lives of our valued employees in the process.

It is for this reason that the company has put various measures in place as recommended by the World Health Organisation and the South African National Command Council chaired by the President of South Africa, having declared the country’s national state of disaster owing to the Corona pandemic. This is despite the nature of AEMFC’s business as a supplier of coal to ESKOM for electricity generation purposes and thus within an essential industry sector. The company has also implemented measures as per the Department of Mineral Resources and Energy (DMRE), guidelines. Some of the critical preventative measures put in force are as follows:


As a result of the National Lockdown, AEMFC Head Office employees and non-essential people from its operation will be mostly working from home. As a result, should any of our service providers have an emergency and need assistance, the above employees will be able to attend to assist or get other members of the company to assist.
