]Johannesburg, South Africa --- MININGREVIEW.COM --- 10 January 2011 - South African power utility Eskom has reiterated its call for urgent coal export restrictions, suggesting a formula-based export quota for mining companies.

]Johannesburg, South Africa --- MININGREVIEW.COM --- 18 November 2010 - The South African government is giving serious consideration to the future regulation of coal exports, in order to protect power utility Eskom from local producers who get higher prices for their coal in India and China.

Mineral resources deputy minister Godfrey Oliphant said here at a conference on clean coal resources that Eskom was suffering because low-grade coal was being sold to India and China. It was proving more profitable for the producers to export the coal than to sell it to Eskom, so the producers then sold a very poor quality product to Eskom.
