FATALITY AT TARGET MINE



Johannesburg, Thursday, 4 February 2021. Harmony Gold Mining Company Limited (?Harmony? and/or ?the Company?) regrets to advise that an employee was fatally injured yesterday, following a seismic event that triggered a fall of ground at its Target mine in Welkom in the Free State Province.
Relevant authorities were informed immediately and an investigation is underway.
?On Friday last week we declared a safety day and brought all our operations and surface plants to a complete standstill to reinforce and revitalise our journey towards improving safe behaviour in the workplace,? said chief executive officer Peter Steenkamp.
?Harmony?s risk-based safety approach is aimed at ensuring that no life is lost at any of our mines. Every effort is made to embed a proactive safety culture within Harmony and our goal is zero harm?, Steenkamp said.
Harmony?s Board and executives have extended their deepest condolences, and those of the Company, to the family, colleagues and friends of the deceased. The family will receive the necessary counselling and support in line with our bereavement policy. Ends.
