The East African Mining Corporation PLC (EAMC) is the mining subsidiary of EAH engaged in the exploration, extraction and mining of the huge potential reserves of various minerals. The company is extracting coal from its two sites in Moye Woreda (70 km west of Jima) in the Oromiya Regional State. The coal is mainly supplied to local manufacturing industries (cement, textile, etc.).
The company is currently conducting open cast coal mining and plans to start the underground mining project as feasibility studies have shown large amounts of reserves lying beneath.
Ethiopia has an abundant supply of mineral resources that remain undeveloped, which EAMC is positioned to tap into in the coming years. The company has acquired exploration licenses for various minerals scattered across the country. EAMC has also invested in state-of-the-art laboratory equipment for mineral investigation and has hired geologists and mining experts from abroad.
