Public violence in vicinity of Harmony’s Kusasalethu mine

Harmony Gold Mining Company Limited (‘Harmony’ or ‘the Company’) confirms that two employees were killed and a third person was injured late yesterday afternoon in the vicinity of its Kusasalethu mine, near Carletonville. The South African Police Service (“SAPS”) has secured the scene of this tragic incident and has commenced their investigation.

Kusasalethu’s operations are unaffected. Harmony, has, however, in conjunction with the SAPS, increased its vigilance and security at this mine to ensure the safety and security of employees.

“Harmony deplores the tragic and senseless loss of life in what appears to be inter-union rivalry, not associated with the operations of the mine. Management, the recognised unions and AMCU have continued to engage in talks about normalising the situation at Kusasalethu, since workers returned to work on the 25th of October 2012 following the unprotected strike. AMCU has applied for recognition and a process of membership verification is underway. We urge all employees and the unions to refrain from violence and follow the proper engagement processes that are in place,” said Graham Briggs, chief executive officer of Harmony.
