Sibanye miner dies after seismic event

Mine operator Sibanye-Stillwater said that 10 of the 13 employees who were trapped have now been rescued, four of which have succumbed to their injuries and passed away.

Meanwhile, the Congress of South African Trade Unions (COSATU) said it was alarmed by the "deteriorating and poor safety record" of the Sibanye Stillwater mining company. The miners were trapped underground for at least 24-hours. Thirteen workers went missing and five who were working in the same area have been rescued so far.

This is the second large-scale incident at mines controlled by Sibanye-Stillwater in recent months.

Wellsted's statement reads as follows: "The Management of Sibanye-Stillwater wishes to express its honest condolences to friends and family of the four deceased employees". Government is sacrificing workers because it is afraid of the mining companies. "Yet we are not able to ensure the safety of miners".

The company was not immediately available for comment.

"Another three employees have been located and are responding to the rescue teams".

Meanwhile, operations at the Masakhane shaft have been suspended.

The statement‚ issued around 11pm‚ said that two employees were conscious and still being brought to the surface.

It said six employees were in hospital, and efforts were continuing to locate the remaining and unaccounted for workers.

The seismic event that measured 2.0 happened close to where Thursday's seismic event happened, which led to 13 miners being trapped.
