Peter Steenkamp, Harmony Gold CEO

Harmony Gold Mining Company Limited advises that mine management, the Department of Mineral Resources (DMR) inspectorate and representatives of the Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (AMCU) today, 28 August 2017, inspected the area where five employees were trapped underground on 25 August 2017.

This follows a seismic event that resulted in a fall of ground approximately 3,100 metres below surface, at the Kusasalethu Mine.

Sadly, two employees who had succumbed to their injuries, were found and brought to surface in the past 48 hours.

Search and rescue efforts have continued since the incident, with Harmony employees and specially trained volunteer rescue teams from Harmony and other mines operating around the clock. At any one time up to six rescue teams are operational underground.

The parties who participated in the inspection today noted that the challenging ground conditions have made rescue efforts particularly difficult.

Efforts to reach the remaining employees will continue until each and every employee has been found. Harmony suspended all operations at the mine shortly after the accident occurred.

The families of the deceased employees, and of those employees who remain trapped, have been notified, and brought to the mine where they have chosen to do so. They are receiving support from the company in these difficult times.
