Miner dies at Mponeng mine

A mine worker was killed and another injured in a seismic event that triggered a fall of ground at Anglo Gold Ashanti’s Mponeng mine, according to Public Affairs Manager Alan Fine.

“At the moment, the team leader who was injured is in hospital and is stable,” Fine said.

He also said that the part of the mine where the accident occurred has been closed.

“An inspector from the department of mineral resources is on his way to investigate the scene,” Fine said.
