Anglo Gold officials to visit Savuka Mine shaft once it’s safe
Two mineworkers were killed when a 3.5 magnitude earth tremor caused a rock fall underground on Friday.
JOHANNEBSURG - Anglo Gold officials say they will visit the Savuka Mine once they are certain it is safe to go down the shaft.
Two mineworkers were killed when a 3.5 magnitude earth tremor caused a rock fall underground at the Carletonville mine on Friday.
It's the latest tragedy after three workers were trapped underground when a container they were working in fell into the belly of the earth during a rock fall at the Lily Mine in February.
Anglo Gold says contact has been made with the families of the deceased in the Eastern Cape and Lesotho.
Anglo gold's Stewart Bailey said, "We will wait for the dissipation of all residual aftershocks that normally occur after this 3.5 magnitude activity. Officials from the Department of Mining and Industry and the company will go down to conduct the inspection."
Yesterday, Mining Minister Mosebenzi Zwane sent his condolences to the families of two mine workers
