HARMONY CALLS OFF UNDERGROUND SHIFTS DUE TO CONTINUED LOAD-SHEDDING
Johannesburg, Tuesday, 10 December 2019. Harmony Gold Mining Company
Limited (“Harmony” and/or “the Company”) confirms that, in response to
a request received from power utility Eskom late yesterday afternoon,
it has reduced power consumption at its South African operations to
levels required only for the maintenance of emergency services.
In the interest of safety and due to reduced power supply, night shift
employees at Harmony’s South African underground operations did not go
underground last night and today’s day shift employees, similarly, will
stay on surface.
“We will resume shifts as soon as Eskom is able to provide us with the
assurance that power supply will be more reliable,” said Peter Steenkamp,
chief executive officer of Harmony.
