FATALITY AT HARMONY`S BRAND 2 SHAFT
Johannesburg. Wednesday, 25 March 2009. Harmony Gold Mining Company Limited
(Harmony) regretfully announces that an accident involving a winder stator at
the Brand 2 shaft of its Virginia operations in the Free State yesterday,
resulted in the death of a team leader.
Management together with the Department of Minerals and Energy commenced
investigations yesterday. Work only at the affected winder reclamation has
been stopped until investigations have been completed. This will not hinder
production as Brand 2 is not an operational shaft.
Harmony`s Chief Executive Officer, Graham Briggs and his management team,
express their sincere condolences to the family of the deceased.
Safety continues to be a priority at Harmony. Behavior-safety initiatives
have been rolled out to all of its operations and the continuous
communication on safety in the working place as well as off the job receives
priority attention from all stakeholders involved.
