MIMOSA SAFETY INCIDENT
Implats and Aquarius Platinum Limited confirm that a fire occurred at the
jointly owned Mimosa operation in Zimbabwe during the night. This was caused
when the conveyor belt in the main decline ignited. The fire has been contained.
All employees have been accounted for and no injuries have been reported. The
majority of the workforce was evacuated following the incident. Initially 75
employees were accommodated in refuge bays due to low visibility. They are now
in the process of being moved to surface. This is expected to be completed
during the course of the afternoon.
At this stage, the extent of the damage and impact on production cannot be
ascertained. Further information will be communicated in due course.
