Northam management welcomes Minister Zwane’s visit

Swift return to work in the best interests of all

The management of Northam Platinum has welcomed Minister Zwane’s visit to the company’s Zondereinde mine in Limpopo province today, Tuesday 14 June 2016.

Minister Zwane’s second visit comes as the investigation into the death of Zondereinde employees Messrs Somaxhama and Mhlabeni gains momentum.

Northam management is encouraged by the swift progress made by the SAPS in the investigations and the way they are being dealt with.

Weekend talks between the parties continued yesterday and today. Management has again called on all parties to return to work in the shortest possible time, so that underground operations may be resumed safely and smoothly.

“A swift return to work would be in the best interests of all parties,” concluded Northam chief executive Paul Dunne.
