AngloGold Ashanti regrets to announce the death of two employees, a Rock Drill Operator and a Crew Supervisor, who were fatally injured in fall of ground and tramming incidents at Kopanang and TauTona Mines this week.

The Department of Mineral Resources (DMR) was notified of both incidents and in-loco inspections were conducted. Initial Management response has been to stop reef-raise development and all secondary support operations at Kopanang and tramming activities at TauTona.

AngloGold Ashanti would like to express its sincere condolences to the families, friends and colleagues of the deceased. Management is working with the two families to assist them through this difficult period and beyond.
