Fire at Harmony’s Phakisa mine

Johannesburg. Wednesday, 24 April 2013. Harmony Gold Mining Company Limited (“Harmony” or the “Company”) advises that there is an underground fire at its Phakisa mine near Welkom. Employees were immediately moved to safety, but one person has still not been accounted for.

The fire started late yesterday afternoon. Despite several attempts to find the missing person, the intensity of the smoke and the high gas levels are making it difficult for the rescue teams to search for the person.

Phakisa’s underground mining areas are linked with those of Tshepong. To ensure that employees of both mines are kept safe, production at both operations have been stopped. “Proto teams are working non-stop to find our colleague and fighting the fire”, Graham Briggs, chief executive officer said.
