VENTURES AFRICA – JSE-listed and global gold miner, Harmony Gold, on Monday said the worker – who was unaccounted for when rescue workers found eight dead bodies at Doornkop mine following a rock fall there last week – was found dead on Friday evening last week.

Harmony said the discovery of this body on Friday evening brought to nine the number of mineworkers who died during the rock fall, which occurred last week Tuesday.

Graham Briggs, the CEO of Harmony, said the company had brought families of the dead mineworkers to the mine where they will be given the support “they need at this time.”

Briggs said this will be followed by an intensive probe into the cause of the Doornkop incident, involving representatives of the firm, union members and the health and safety directorate of the Department of Mineral Resources.

Shares of Harmony slipped last week as yet another set of deaths was reported at its mines in the North West and the Free State Provinces respectively.

The company disclosed that two people were killed at its Kusasalethu mine in the North West and at Joel mine in the Free State.
