Condensed reviewed interim financial results for the period ended 30 June 2020

Introduction to the Company

The Company’s principal activities are exploration, mining, processing of coal and the production of
coke and related by-products in the north western part of Zimbabwe, Hwange District in the
Matabeleland North Province.

The Company was placed under administration by a Reconstruction Order made by the Minister of
Justice, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs (“the Minister”) in terms of the Reconstruction of State-
Indebted Companies Act (Chapter 24:27) on or about 26 October 2018. The reasons for this include:

a) Gross losses;
b) Persistent losses over a long period;
c) Negative cash flow;
d) Obsolete and antiquated plant and equipment;
e) Technical insolvency with liabilities significantly exceeding assets;
f) Non payment of creditors as they fell due; and
g) Non payment of employees over a long period of time.

Owing to the above mining had stopped in August 2018.
