Two miners are trapped underground following a ground-fall at Sibanye Gold’s Kloof Gold Mine on Gauteng’s West Rand.

It’s unclear what caused it, but Sibanye Gold believes it may be due to seismic activity.

The company’s James Wellsted says a rescue operation is underway.

“There was a fall of ground incident at one of our shafts at Kloof which is on the West Rand near Glen Harvey. The crew that was working managed to get out from underground but two of our employees are unaccounted for at this point. We have got the rescue teams mobilised and we trying to get access to them,” says Wellsted.
