Evan­der mine faces job cuts

CityPress - - Business And Tenders -

Pan African Re­sources is con­sid­er­ing re­duc­ing staff at its Evan­der Gold Mine in Mpumalanga that would af­fect about 80% of em­ploy­ees at the op­er­a­tion.

It warned that a re­fur­bish­ment pro­gramme could take longer than planned and could be dif­fi­cult to im­ple­ment suc­cess­fully, ac­cord­ing to the Na­tional Union of Minework­ers (NUM).

Pan African no­ti­fied work­ers this week that it could ter­mi­nate as many as 2 000 jobs, said NUM spokesper­son Livhuwani Mamm­buru.

The mine, which em­ploys 2 435 work­ers, needs sig­nif­i­cant im­prove­ments so it will not be moth­balled, ac­cord­ing to a no­tice to em­ploy­ees.
