Fatal accident at BRPM
Mine management immediately suspended operations at the North Shaft. Following an in loco inspection, led by the Department of Mineral Resources (DMR) on Wednesday afternoon, a section 54 instruction was issued by the DMR (in terms of the Mine Health and Safety Act), suspending winch and scraping-related activities until a presentation has been made by the mine to the DMR and permission has been granted to resume such operations.
RBPlat regrets the incident more especially after recently achieving one million fatality-free shifts. The safety of our employees remains a top priority.
