Sibanye-Stillwater and the Department of Mineral Resources are conducting an investigation into the death of an employee at the Driefontein mine on Monday evening in South Africa.
The incident was said to have occurred while the employee was clearing a blocked ore pass according to MiningWeekly.
MiningWeekly reports that, “Sibanye-Stillwater expresses its deepest condolences to the deceased employee’s family, friends and colleagues,” on Tuesday.
The National Union of Mineworkers expressed concern about the loss of lives at Sibanye-Stillwater’s operations in recent weeks, pointing out that two employees at the miner’s Kloof mine had died in a fall-of-ground incident last week.
Operations in the affected area have been suspended while the investigation is under way.
