Harmony closes its Kusasalethu mine one day earlier than planned for the festive season due to labour unrest

Harmony Gold Mining Company Limited (‘Harmony’ or ‘the Company’) advises that it is closing its Kusasalethu mine near Carletonville a day earlier than planned for the festive season, following violent behavior and damage to mine infrastructure on surface.

Security at the mine and the SAPS are on the scene to control the crowd and to further ensure the safety of all the employees. The violence followed the suspension of 578 employees including some contractors as a result of the participation of these employees in an unprotected strike action on Saturday, 15 December 2012.

Tom Smith, chief operating officer of Harmony commented: “We have made it clear that no violence will be tolerated and to ensure the safety of our employees it has become imperative to close the shaft until the labour issues have been resolved.”
