NUM members at Sibanye Stillwater's Kloof Mine to observe a day of mourning today


The National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) members will today observe a day of mourning at Sibanye Stillwater's Kloof Mine mine in Westonaria in honour of the two miners who perished last week.  A decision to observe a day of mourning was taken by the NUM members during a mass meeting yesterday because they are worried about the ever deteriorating levels of safety at Sibanye Stillwater operations.  

The NUM is disappointed on the trend of incidents and accidents at Sibanye Stillwater. There was a near miss of disaster where about 1000 workers were trapped underground as a result of power failure two weeks ago at Beatrix Mine in Welkom.

Less than a week again two workers died as a result of fall of rocks at Kloof Mine at Sibanye Stillwater.

NUM Health and Safety Chairperson comrade Peter Bailey and Cosatu Deputy General Secretary comrade Solly Phetoe, SACP and ANC representatives are expected to address the event.

The details of the event are as follows:

Time: 9 am
Venue: Kloof Mine
Date: 15 February 2017


For more detailed information, please contact:

Peter Bailey: NUM Health and Safety Chairperson: 082 883 7302


Address:

7 Rissik Street.
