Harmony Gold CEO, Graham Briggs, said the discovery of four million ounces of gold equivalent at the firm's 100% owned Kili Teke exploration site in Papua New Guinea (PNG) was "step one" in growing a magnificent resource base.

Harmony Gold Mining Co. shares rose the most in a month after the company announced copper and gold resources at a prospect in Papua New Guinea.

Gold miner Harmony Gold is “thrilled” with the prospect of transforming its Kili Teke resource – the first new porphyry copper-gold deposit defined in Papua New Guinea since the Golpu discovery in the early 1990s – into a major new deposit.

Harmony Gold Mining Company has advised that it is one of only eight companies globally that has been awarded an A grade for its water security and water management efforts by the CDP, formerly the Carbon Disclosure Project.

Harmony Gold has struck an agreement with unions at its loss-making Doornkop mine on a restructuring plan that will scale back job cuts.

Harmony's troubled Doornkop mine will be kept in operation following agreement with mining industry unions on a plan to return the mine to profitability with minimal retrenchments from the 3,100 strong workforce.

South Africa can overcome its mining industry challenges, as long as global shareholders look at it as a competitive and a good industry to invest in, according to African Rainbow Minerals executive chairperson Patrice Motsepe.

Harmony Gold has announced that it will continue to restructure its operations for long-term profitability.

The Chamber of Mines on Monday applauded the "courageous" role played by rescue services in the evacuation of 486 miners during an underground fire at Harmony Gold's Kusasalethu mine.

The rescue teams responsible for bringing nearly 500 miners to safety after a fire at a Harmony Gold [JSE:HAR] mine 75km west of Johannesburg were called lions for their bravery by Mineral Resources Minister Ngoako Ramatlhodi, who visited the site of the incident on Monday.

All 486 miners who were trapped underground at a gold mine in on Sunday have been brought to the surface, a spokesperson for mining company Harmony Gold said.

Harmony Gold said all of the 486 miners who were underground at Kusasalethu as a fire raged following maintenance in the mine had been brought safely to surface.

South Africa’s Harmony Gold was able to rescue all of its 486 employees trapped underground on Sunday at its Kusasalethu mine safely, but the miner’s profit will likely take a hit.

Harmony Gold’s new “game changing” copper and gold play in Papua New Guinea would enable a more risk-diverse portfolio, with the company now “getting into position” to develop its 50% joint venture project with Australian gold miner Newcrest Mining.

Harmony Gold is looking for ways to cut electricity usage to counter the interruptions in the supply from Eskom, which in the December quarter cost 50kg of gold worth more than R12.6m the company’s interim results, released yesterday showed.
