Tremor at Sibanye Mine kills four

13 trapped underground as South African gold mine collapses following earthquake

Sibanye-Stillwater reported on Thursday that 13 workers had been trapped underground after three seismic events at its Driefontein operations.

Wellsted says they are hoping to reach the remaining three miners while there is still time. They will be put back in soon once we have done our assessment.

Sibanye-Stillwater spokesperson James Wellsted said the rescue operation had been temporarily halted this afternoon after two seismic events.

Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union president Joseph Mathunjwa lambasted the mine over the accident, saying that workers were sent down the mine after an earlier seismic event.

This is the second large-scale incident at mines controlled by Sibanye-Stillwater in recent months.

According to Ayanda Shezi, spokesman for the Mineral Resources Department, the gold sector has experienced the most mining fatalities this year. "Yet we are not able to ensure the safety of miners".

The seismic event that measured 2.0 happened close to where Thursday's seismic event happened, which led to 13 miners being trapped.

Meanwhile, operations at the Masakhane shaft have been suspended.

"Mine rescue teams were immediately mobilised and three employees have been located and have been interacting with the rescue teams". "All efforts are being made to locate the 10 employees who remain unaccounted for", the firm said, in a statement to Reuters.

Wellsted said an update would be provided when more information was available.
