Underground incident at RBPlat's Styldrift project
Seven employees have been admitted to hospital with minor injuries confirmed, while all those in the vicinity have been admitted for twenty-four hour observation as a precautionary measure.
All operations at the shaft were temporarily halted after the incident and the Department of Mineral Resources has been informed. Inspections of the affected area are being undertaken, however no structural damage to the shaft, infrastructure and underground workings have been observed. Work will only resume once these have been completed. An update in this regard will be released by the company in due course.
