The death toll in the country’s mines has risen to nine in this month alone.

The National Union of Mineworkers has warned the Chamber of Mines of serious consequences, should it continue to talk about improved safety when breadwinners are lost in largely preventable accidents.

Two mineworkers died this weekend one died at Samancor Millsell after falling while working in the mine, and another one died at Angloplatinum when a rock fell on him.

Lesiba Seshoka National Spokesperson for the National Union of Mineworkers says more needs to be done to ensure safety in the mines.
