Harmony’s Target mine accident update: Rescue workers bring two employees to safety

Johannesburg. Tuesday, 27 October 2009. Harmony Gold Mining Company Limited (Harmony) announced this morning that rescue workers have brought to safety the two employees trapped underground following yesterday’s rockfall at the company’s Target Mine in the Free State.

All employees involved were accounted for at 20:00 last night.

The two rescued employees both sustained injuries and have been admitted to hospital. Their condition is stable.

Two employees died in yesterday’s rockfall, the circumstances of which are being investigated both internally and in conjunction with the Safety Inspectorate of the Department of Mineral Resources. Production at the mine was stopped by management shortly after the rockfall. Measures are being taken, however, to ensure that the area in the main decline where the rockfall took place is secured and that working places are supported and made safe.

Management extends its deepest condolences to the families, friends and colleagues of the men who died.
