Update 4: Doornkop mine
The Minister of Mineral Resources, Susan Shabangu; David Msiza (the Chief
Inspector of Mines); Mike Teke (President of the Chamber of Mines); Piet
Mathosa (Deputy President of the NUM); Patrice Motsepe (Chairman of
Harmony); and Graham Briggs (Chief executive officer of Harmony) met at
Harmony's Doornkop mine today.
Together they conveyed their condolences to the families of the deceased.
Mine management provided a brief to the Minister and her party on the
events of the past two days at Doornkop, and collectively they addressed
the media and employees thereafter.
A key point of discussion at the briefing was the investigation that will
be conducted by the Ministry, in collaboration with Harmony management
and the NUM, in coming days. It was emphasised that the investigation
will uncover the events that led to the tragedy at Doornkop and that
speculation before the investigation is concluded would not serve any
purpose. The Minister noted that the outcome of the investigation would
have "learnings" for all.
Chief executive officer, Graham Briggs presented an update on the rescue
operations, which continue for the missing employee. “Finding the missing
employee remains the company's priority”, he said.
The company has made contact with the families of all the men who had
died and will, in the coming days, be providing counselling and other
assistance to them during this difficult time.
