Work stoppage at Virginia operations

Harmony Gold Mining Company Limited (Harmony) acknowledges that 6 500 employees at its Virginia operations downed tools earlier today.

The work stoppage at Harmony’s Virginia operations in the Free State is related to the safety incident at Unisel Mine where an employee lost his life on Friday 11 July 2008. Harmony is engaging with regional union representatives to address the matter.

The employee was killed at Unisel on Friday after accidently injuring himself with a water jet that he was operating. Unisel has enjoyed an excellent safety record until this unfortunate incident, having last week achieved their One Million Fatality Free Shifts.

In another incident, an employee was killed this morning at Harmony’s Elandsrand Gold Mine in an accident involving a scraper.

Harmony deeply regrets the loss of life and extends its condolences to the next of kin. We will continue to do all we can to eliminate fatal accidents on our mines.
