The company said a range of awareness, risk mitigation and prevention strategies have been rolled out across all of its operations.

'Following the calls by President Cyril Ramaphosa, who declared COVID-19 a national disaster, we have put numerous measures in place to create awareness of the threat and to also combat any spread of the virus,' chief executive Cobus Loots said.

'We have also informed employees of the actions to be taken for prevention and mitigation of COVID-19.'

Pan African Resources said it would continue to monitor the situation.
