At 1240hrs, on 18 December 2023 approximately twenty-eight (28) intruders cut through the fence and illegally accessed the Airstrip Waste Rock Dump at the mine. The unarmed private security contractors were unable to repel the intruders and subsequently requested the police to enter the site to remove the intruders from the mine as the intruders refused to leave when requested to do so.

During this operation, the police identified an injured intruder. The police transported him to a nearby hospital for treatment, where he unfortunately succumbed to his injuries.

The nature of the deceased’s injury and the cause of his death have not yet been established. Further investigation is underway.
