Two miners die in rock fall
Johannesburg - Two miners were killed in a rock fall at the Modikwa platinum mine in Burgersfort, Limpopo, the National Union of Mine Workers (NUM) said on Saturday.
Spokesperson Lesiba Seshoka said the accident occurred on Friday afternoon at the mine located on the border of the Mpumalanga and Limpopo provinces.
"We are really disappointed that in January we are seeing fatalities [in mines] rising to over ten so far this year. Last year the deaths reached just beyond 120," he said.
The identities of the two men have not been released.
