Harmony calls off underground shifts due to continued load-shedding

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.
