East African Coal Mining Corporation was formed to engage in the mining sector eyeing the huge potential of various minerals with large deposits available throughout the country that are still unexplored and untapped.
Currently East African Holdings has a concession of a coal mine that is located around 370 km west of the capital in the Oromia regional state which it acquired in 2005. Currently Open cast mining is being carried out and the coal that is being extracted is being supplied to meet the energy requirements of National Cement and also other industries such as textile manufacturers, that also use coal as a source of energy. The company has witnessed a significant gradual increase in the demand for coal by various consumers in the industry, ever since it first started supplying its coal to the market, which has pushed the company to increase the amount of extraction from time to time. In the long run the company is also considering to start underground mining, as studies done show the deposit has huge amount of reserves lying beneath.
Currently EAMC is also engaged in the exploration activities of other coal reserves throughout the country specially in areas where studies have shown to have a large accumulation of high quality coal, such as the Somali region, in order to take concessions and start mining.
East African Coal Mining Corporation is counting on the future demand for coal to supply the energy requirements of various heavy industries such as cement factories as well as other industries that use coal as a source of energy.
