Randfontein – Section 54 mine stoppage notices are not intended to stifle economic growth, said Mines Minister Mosebenzi Zwane at a briefing about mining health and safety on Thursday.

This follows reports by MiningMX that Sibanye Gold [JSE:SGL] plans to issue the Department of Mineral Resources a R26m claim for losses because of unfair mine stoppages implemented at Kroondal Platinum Mines last year.

In response to this, Zwane said at the briefing: “Our aim is not to ensure businesses lose money during closure.”
