JOHANNESBURG - South Africa&39;s National Union of Mineworkers said on Monday it was deeply concerned that another worker had died at Sibanye-Stillwater&39;s Khuseleka operation in Rustenburg last Friday.
"Since January this year, 16 mineworkers have died so far in the mining industry and five fatalities happened at Sibanye Stillwater," the union&39;s health and safety chairperson Peter Bailey said.
"We calling for more serious intervention to take place at Sibanye Stillwater operations in South Africa. We will end up in a situation where workers are killed and it becomes normal."
