Nick Holland, Gold Fields Chief Executive Officer

Gold Fields Limited regrets to announce a fatality at the South Deep mine in South Africa in a tramming-related accident today, 16  February 2017.

South Deep management has suspended all hopper tramming activities, pending a full risk assessment, and has notified the Department of Mineral Resources.

An in-loco inspection will take place later today.

“This is a serious setback in our efforts to continuously improving safety at South Deep as it is the second fatality we have recorded this year.” During 2016 the mine had reported one fatality,” says Nick Holland, Gold Fields Chief Executive Officer.

“Until this year we had shown measureable improvement in safety behaviour and have spent considerable time and resources on making working conditions safer. These two fatalities tragically remind us that we can never lessen our resolve in prioritising safety at all our operations,” says Holland.

“Our heartfelt condolences go out to the family, friends and colleagues of the deceased. Management will do everything possible to support them in this hour of need,” adds Holland.
