Press Statement, 01 June 2018


One miner died at Sibanye Stillwater's Driefontein Hlanganani Shaft


The National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) is deeply concerned that the mining industry has yet claimed another life of a mineworker, this time again at Sibanye Stillwater's Driefontein Hlanganani shaft outside Carletonville. The mineworker died early hours of this morning at Driefontein Hlanganani shaft due to fall of ground. This is after three mineworkers were trapped while doing their night shift work.

Driefontein is running fast to break the record of fatal injuries in the mining industry within a short space of time after the seven workers that died on the 3rd May 2018.

The NUM demand that a Day of Mourning be observed at Driefontein Mine and must not operate in honour and respect of the mineworker who died early hours of this morning. The fatalities that are happening at Sibanye Stillwater are totally unacceptable.

One death is one death too many. We sell our labour, not our lives, lungs, and limbs.
