A mineworker at Harmony Gold’s Tshepong mine near Welkom in the Free State was fatally injured in a tramming accident.
Investigations into the accident are underway, the company said in a statement on Monday.
This brings the number of fatal accidents at Harmony’s operations this year to eleven, after nine miners died in February following a fire at Harmony’s Doornkop mine and another miner died after a fall at the same mine in July.
“It is with great sadness that we learned of the fatality. We extend our heartfelt condolences to the family, colleagues and friends of the deceased,” said Harmony’s Chief Executive Officer, Graham Briggs.
