Johannesburg - Eskom will not pay Glencore's SA unit more than R150 a tonne when a temporary coal contract ends on November 30, says the utility's chief executive, Brian Molefe.

"A contract is a contract," Molefe told Reuters in an interview on Tuesday, referring to the agreement Eskom has with Glencore's Optimum mine.

Under that contract, Optimum provides Eskom with 10 million tonnes a year at R150 a tonne, a rate the company says is less than the cost of production.
