Solidarity is concerned about a series of deaths at Aurora’s mines.
Police have, after a massive search, found the body of a 30-year old man who fell to his death in the Ndlovu shaft at Grootvlei mine over the weekend.
According to Solidarity spokesperson Gideon du Plessis, the accident is the direct result of what he describes as “Aurora’s negligence”.
Du Plessis says they will take immediate steps to have the mine shafts closed.
